Anti-Obamacare Americans threaten to move to Canada

Any time the Republicans come into power in the United States, the common refrain from Democrats is "I'm moving to Canada."

It makes sense — Canada, in theory, is a more liberal, socialized country than the U.S.

In a perplexing twist, however, Thursday's Supreme Court of the United States decision, upholding President Barack Obama's plan to further socialize America's healthcare system, has led many Republicans to look north.

Some took to Twitter to share their plans.

I'm sick that Obamacare passed. Screw it, I'm moving to Canada.

— Devin Thomas (@DevinThomas94)

Mom and I have decided to move to Canada because the US government is ruining America with all it's unjust taxes

— Alexandra Potter (@AlexandraP95)

Others, appropriately, mocked those posts, reminding expat-wannabes that Canada has been using a free healthcare model for years:

To all of you saying you're going to move to Canada bc
was upheld….um..they have..universal health..um…actually nvm

— Philip DeFranco (@PhillyD)

"I hate Obamacare so I'm moving to Canada! Also, I hate pot, so I'm moving to Amsterdam."

— Matt Suddain (@suddain)

if you're angry about
, and you say or post that you are moving to canada, you are too stupid to live anywhere on this planet.

— jay bentley (@jay_bentley)

My favourite response to "I'm moving to Canada" Jason A. Quest ·I am sick of this hot weather! I'm moving to Ethiopia!

— trapdinawrpool (@trapdinawrpool)

Moving to Canada because of socialist US healthcare ruling. Also moving to Mexico because I'm tired of all the Spanish I hear in LA.

— Miles (@fauxpork)

Despite the Twitter buzz, it doesn't look like many Obama-hating Americans are actually acting on their threats.

Yahoo! Canada News spoke to Canadian immigration attorney Michael Niren who said he has not had any calls from Americans upset about Obamacare and ready to move to Canada.

He did say, however, that he used to get "a lot of calls" from Democrats when George W. Bush was in office.

I wonder if those same Americans can even point to Canada on the map. Not a fan of Obamacare either, but Jesus Christ on pita bread, they make it out to be some kind of tragedy. There are much better and more valid reasons to leave America.

Most of the cities/capital cities are NDP/left wing and have been for a very long time. Most of Quebec is NDP/left wing. That says it all. And people wonder why I can't stand the NDP or left wingers. They are the problem.

I don't know how many left leaning Americans I've known who moved to Canada and loved it at first but ended up becoming dissatisfied and leaving once the novelty wore off.

I can't see too many right wing Americans wanting to stay.
