There is no reason for our nation to NOT at least be on that list. We can do much better. I doubt allowing for-profit healthcare companies even wider latitude is the answer.
I don't disagree that everyone should have access to healthcare, I think that western democracies can at least provide that as a basic human need. I won't speak for the other countries on your list but there are lots of other reports that shows that our cost in Canada for healthcare is just about the worst on the planet regarding dollars spent vs wait times, availability and quality of care. Our healthcare system is bloated with non-healthcare workers (bureaucrats) making up more than the actual deliverers of medicine.
