A wonderful idea, and I don't understand what anyone could possibly have against it.
An idea who time is past due
It is sad that health care is not available to all who deserve. I say deserve, as there are many who blatantly abuse their health by taking all sorts of stuff that harm.<br />
Free health as it is available to all citizens in Europe should be available to all citizens of the USA. <br />
I cannot ever see this happening as the rich/republicans will not pass any legislation to effect this deserving/essential care.
The NHS is not perfect, open to abuse and too top heavy with managers. But I value it. My GPs have been fantastic, I have depression (harassment and bullying at work) and they have been nothing but supportive. I have had therapy on the NHS and honestly would not be here without the support I have received.
Absolutely Pixel. In agreement.
It works if people don't abuse it
I live in the UK and I just got a root filling and a tooth cap for free... I like the NHS.
The government created and enforces a massively over priced medical MONOPOLY that charges "pay or die" prices. Instead of fixing THEIR problem, they are now making US pay for their extreme graft and corruption.
I like the idea of it, but I doubt it would ever work.
Does that mean I have to travel to another country to get an appointment now, Ah jeez.... It just keeps gettin' more and more expensive!
I know a couple that moved to the Czech Republic
for just that reason. (They were republicans when they lived in the U.S.)
I like it but it should not be offered to everyone. They should also make it work differently for different people.
