We have the NHS in england and tax payers fund abortion under the guises of “health care” that’s what state sponsored health care turns into, disgusting.

Also a lady on the news today with cancer couldn’t get a drug to save her life as it was “too expensive” for the NHS.

Dentistry isn’t FREE as you would think and its a nightmare finding 1 to take you on his books.

Did i mention waiting lists and waiting times in hospital? Well they are crazy.

Superbugs are rampant in state sponsored hospitals here.

End of the day the government throws money at it like crazy and at best its a sticking plaster, can use peoples money for insane reasons and tell others to go off and die as their treatment isn’t economically viable.

I imagine you will get something pretty similar.

  1. Drag and drop?

    But seriously, to answer your question, medicare in the US works fairly well, certainly better than HMOs and the private sector. So why not have medicare for all? Yes, it will be more expensive than what other countries have so we will need higher taxes, but as you correctly point out the US has better performance in many areas of healthcare for seniors. [Of course, life expectancy is lower in the US but a lot of that has to do with economic inequality and poverty, not the medical system per se]
