Arguments over health care are a daily occurrence in statehouses around this country. While it’s hard to find common ground on what reforms would be best, everyone can agree that the cost of health care can be downright absurd. Which is why, as the Vancouver Sun reports, a Canadian family on vacation opted to return to their Quebec home with a dead relative in the car rather than taking him to a hospital in the United States. Unfortunately for them, guards at the border opted to search their car. When they did, they found what was likely a lot more than they were looking for. The man appeared to have died of natural causes, most likely from a heart attack. Which is how most Americans feel when they get their bill from a U.S. hospital.
