Interesting are the comments on education and healthcare - their view is we have a good educational system, and the wish to get away from a "test-centric" educational system that only teaches students how to pass standardized exams - some of the same criticism I've heard over No Child Left Behind. And the view we already have an excellent healthcare system, despite the fact that Obamacare hasn't even started being implemented yet.

Interesting indeed that they seem to be trying to get away from government-run programs of the type that, we seem to be determined to emulate in this country in the near future.
