Has there ever been a major candidate in any of the universal healthcare countries that ran

on a repeal platform?

I hadn't really googled the matter, but based on my many years of recall and observational experience I responded with this to a Republican dipshit who was badmouthing Obamacare, single payer, the Canadian healthcare system, and universal healthcare in general:

And you want to know what should be the ONE THING that convinces you the Canadian system is better than ours? What a rational person would heed? What an intelligent person would concede?

It's this: Canada used to have a system JUST LIKE OURS, based around private insurance companies. They ditched it. They're now HAPPIER. They don't want to go back.

You name me just one major candidate in Canada, Australia, the UK, France, Japan, etc. who has ever run on a platform of abolishing their universal healthcare systems. Just one. You CAN'T. It doesn't happen. All your silly little arguments based on insurance company propaganda and myths couldn't sway a typical Canadian, Australian, Brit, or Frenchman.... because having lived under their systems they KNOW you and the bribed pig politicians who have you snookered are full of shit.

1. There probably has been,

but nobody noticed because they would not let such a person out of the asylum.
