    US healthcare is a bad joke

    Just watched this:



    $500 / stitch is insane, Seriously, your system is laughable

    and one quite new video about our healthcare system here in Finland:

    Wtf does that have to do with healthcare costs? You're intentionally trying to distract with nonsensical information.

    "What if they have less squirrels than us? Then their healthcare would be astronomically expensive and unaffordable for millions just like ours!"

    We pay over double PER CAPITA what other nations pay yet we still are ranked low globally in quality of care, access to care, affordability, life expectancy, infant mortality rate, and every other metric. The US has the most rationed healthcare in the western world with literal death panels at insurance agencies deciding who dies and lives.

    Are they including what an insurance company makes in this cost?


    Of course it will cost more?

    I don't understand your question or why you chose to ignore all of my post. ALL EXPENSES CONSIDERED Americans pay over double per capita what other nations pay to GET LESS. If you want to challenge that objective fact, use your words and make an argument instead of these lazy one liners.

    I know(LOL)



    Look, I, like you have a problem with our cost

    Doesn't mean we need to turn it over to our VAIN FED GOV


    Also, our Healthcare is actually better in many ways

    We lead innovation for example

    You've made it clear that you're only here to distract and obstruct any conversation of the facts. There are dozens and dozens of different healthcare models, many of which are free market and not managed by the government. You're willfully choosing to be ignorant of facts.

    I THINK what he is saying, is that due to those countries spending less on military, they can afford to spend more on healthcare. Which reduces INDIVIDUAL costs.

    More over, they can reduce the cost of healthcare by reducing the overhead, by having free, or dramatically cheaper education, and reduced R and D, since the US is responsible for most innovations.

    Not saying our system is perfect, or even ideal. Its FUBAR. But we will not be able to imitate their systems.

    Except they don't spend more on Healthcare, THEY SPEND LESS. Why is it the go-to argument for conservatives is that every other Healthcare system must be secretly more expensive than ours, it's just the big subsidies that make it affordable! All costs, including individual rates and subsidies equal a sum LESS than half of what we pay.

    It was a stupid argument on his part and you shouldn't jump on board. I think it's sad that you think so incredibly little of America and Americans that you think we could never do what dozens of other countries have successfully done.
