Justin Bieber supports single payer health care
The singer will undoubtedly raise the ire of those who devoutly believe that "America is the greatest country in the world in every single way, always has been, and always will be and anyone who doubts that is a an anti-American Islamofascisticcommie" by comparing Canada's single payer health care system favorably to the US system.
The Canadian-born Bieber never plans on becoming an American citizen. "You guys are evil," he jokes. "Canada's the best country in the world." He adds, "We go to the doctor and we don't need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you're broke because of medical bills. My bodyguard's baby was premature, and now he has to pay for it. In Canada, if your baby's premature, he stays in the hospital as long as he needs to, and then you go home."
He's not the only celebrity thinking that the present health care system in the US is evil.
