Justin Bieber: American healthcare is evil

Pop sensation Justin Bieber may only be 16-years old, but he knows he has no interest in becoming an American.
Justin Bieber: American healthcare is evil

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine the Canadian declared he had no interest in trading in to become an American. “Canada's the best country in the world. 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,” he said. “You guys are evil.”Bieber further explained his opposition to dictatorships, highlighting “whatever they have in Korea” as “bad.” While he may be out of touch with American Republicans on healthcare, he is not on abortion. "I really don't believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby,” Bieber said. Even in the case of rape, Bieber opposes abortions. “Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason,” he explained. It is unclear if Bieber’s stance will have any impact on US healthcare policy. But, unlike most Americans, let alone most 16-year olds, Bieber has met with US President Barack Obama on at least two occasions. Apparently, Obama’s daughters Sasha and Malia are big fans.
