President Obama defended Canada's health care system on Monday, telling a Canadian reporter in Mexico that his country is often used as a "bogeyman" for the debate that has engulfed U.S. reform efforts.
However, the president said he is not looking to duplicate the Canadian model at home.
"I don't find Canadians particularly scary, but I guess some of the opponents of reform think that they make a good bogeyman," Obama said with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper by his side.
"I suspect that you Canadians will continue to get dragged in by those who oppose reform, even though I've said nothing about Canadian health care reform," he told the reporter during a press conference at the North American Leaders Summit.
Obama said the United States spends the most money per person on health care but some measures show the U.S. doesn't rank at the top in terms of outcomes.

“Obama said the United States spends the most money per person on health care but some measures show the U.S. doesn’t rank at the top in terms of outcomes”
This is a bare-faced lie!
Obama translated: "My brand of Socialism is better than Canada's because I'm so wonderfully brilliant and know better than any other Marxist (past or present) how to administer privileges to my subjects."
Certainly not this:
-9bama talks about choice. Okay, here it is. If you choose the private option, you stay in the US. If you choose a socialist rationed system, you move to Canada.
All this time I thought the Congress was writing the bill.
Does this mean Obama is writing it?
I thought he just signed it? Oh Well, I suppose this is more of the Change, He has already replaced cabinet heads with Czars, and Ron Emmanuel runs State Department,now we have Obama writing the Bills. Why dont we get a great savings and just fire the Congress, King Obama doesnt need them.
Depends on how you define "outcomes". The recent study that placed America at 37 among the industrialized nations defined "outcomes" by traditional socialist goals (is everyone equal? Do the rich pay more for servics? Do the poor receive free care? etc.)
It is ranked #1 by doctors, not Marxist workerbees.
