What do Snowbirds think?
I want someone (like Bloggingheads.tv) to hire a small stadium meeting in Florida for a huge town hall. Only Canadian "Snowbirds"allowed to attend with Canadian "Medicare" issued photo ID. Free Tim Hortons Coffee?
As they enter, they are given either a red or blue flag and told to sit at opposite sides of the stadium. Since they have experience with both systems it will give us an excellent sample of public opinion on a large group of upper middle class people who have experience with both systems.
Republicans can easily study the proposals of Canadian and British conservatives thinkers on how to have universal heath care within the context of a private free market system.
But don't look to business people for policy guidance. I remember talking to one executive of large pharmacy chain in Canada extolling the virtues of capitalism.
