    all the forms are the same. The records are centralized. The specialists talk to each other, and to the patient's GP. Who, by the way, is often at a clinic no more than 15 minutes away.

    They don't live in their own little sphere and do the same tests over because they'll make more money that way, or do test a today and then wait 3 days for test b because the insurance company won't let you do test and and b on the same day, or let you do just test b without test a.

    And the care is, for the vast majority of cases, light years better than what you get here.

    It also includes mental health. And physical therapy. And family counseling. And home visits, by nurses, doctors, or therapists, when needed. Excellent prenatal and well baby care, including home visits from a nurse during the first few weeks.

    For EVERYBODY. FOR FREE (well, covered by taxes).

    I want it. Now. Increase my taxes, I wouldn't mind.
