The Us does to a point with Medicaid and Medicare- but its so clusterfkkkd- and there is so much waste you'd hardly know it
I'm with you
Because medicine is big business and has a lot of influence on politicians, because to fund such a program means the rich might have to pay more in taxes instead of less, because the extreme right wing believes the government should just let people who can't afford insurance suffer because it's their own fault for not having the money for insurance.
Socialized medicine is hardly the only cause of the financial problems of these countries; if they could get people actually working and off the dole, the medicine would be easy to deal with. Though, from what I've heard, the British medical system is not as efficient as the US's.
To paraphrase Scrooge--Let the poor die and decrease the excess population
Right--if they weren't lazy they'd be out there working at all those jobs that don't exist.
tablets are a new curencey.
i think so. a more compassionate system, i think ours is somewhat based on socialisim where as americas is big business.

Thanks for the interest--so many of us are being victimized by the rich. Oil companies, banks, etc--all getting rich while the middle class is sinking into poverty at their hands.
$4,000 to walk in the door--I don't think they need funding. I will never do that again--I'll take my chances next time.
The sad thing is that the US government spends tons of money (about 50% of all healthcare spending is done by the government), and only covers a tiny percentage of the population (govt workers, veterans, the old and poor).
socialized medicine is laughable
if you got seriously ill. where would you go in the world? be honest
Healthcare is a part of capitalism and money is god and king in the good old USA.
chips i appreciate your honesty and i didnt mean to offend. However the idea of socialized med. does not sit well with me.
