This news headline caught my eye today:

The funny thing is that without context, you couldn’t tell if the headline is referring to the Canadian healthcare system or the American one, despite the huge divide between the two.  I’m sure I’m over-generalizing here, but it seems Canadians covet being able to pay for health services like Americans can (“it’s my health!”), and Americans covet the affordable health coverage Canadians have (à la Sarah Palin).

Maybe we should just swap.
