Justin Bieber Likes Health Care Too Much to Become ‘Evil’ American
Posted on Feb 17, 2011
Justin Bieber isn’t just a pop sensation, he’s a Canadian pop sensation, which means his health care costs are covered. The 16-year-old tells Rolling Stone why he never wants to be an American citizen:
“You guys are evil,” he jokes. “Canada’s the best country in the world.” He adds, “We go to the doctor and we don’t need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you’re broke because of medical bills. My bodyguard’s baby was premature, and now he has to pay for it. In Canada, if your baby’s premature, he stays in the hospital as long as he needs to, and then you go home.”
