Please note the difference

Nate Silver clears some things up for us:

FiveThirtyEight: Politics Done Right: Not All Socialist Countries are Alike
In Canada, the government is like the VISA card, and the health care is like the things. Kinda crazy, eh? ('Eh' is the Canadian word for 'huh'). We'd never do something like that in this country, except for old people who don't know any better.
And though Nate doesn't come right out and say it:  Neither is anywhere near what Obama and Congressional Democrats are proposing.  Not that it makes a difference, since the reactionaries are out in force as if they were seriously considering using the old and feeble as base ingredients for Soylent Green.   But it bears repeating from time to time.
