Wait Times

In Canada, when my gall bladder infection was deemed life threatening, it was operated on within hours. True, if you have a non-life-threatening condition, like hip replacement, you can wait many months. In the USA, if you need a hip replacement, either you have pots of money, in which case you get immediate attention, or you don’t, in which case you get no attention, in effect put on an infinitely long waiting list. Which would you rather have, a long waiting list or an infinitely long one?
