Mexican medical tourism

this article on Yahoo notes that something akin to a million Americans a year seek medical assistance in Mexico. What said article fails to mention is that Mexico has a public-option universal health care plan more or less on the public-private model currently proposed by President Obama.
Mexico has lapped us by a country mile simply by detaching healthcare from the workplace, you get it down there because you need it not because you have a job at the right company.
Funny how everyone at those congressional health care forums was screaming themselves hoarse about "socialized medicine" while their fellow citizens go sneaking off over the borders to Canada and Mexico and ghod knows where else to fill up on prescriptions or get a dental filling.
And THIS is Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney's idea of the perfect medical care system...the export of need??
