    South Korea government runs universal health care. Totally different than America but needs more improvement. We can learn from Sweden. Annual cap around 500 hundred dollars for Sweden citizens’ medical cost. The Rest of the cost is taken care of by Goverment and doctors and nurses are public workers so they don’t try to profit over vulnerable patients. They are more interested in preventing diseases and make people healthy

    Thank you, Ms. Jung:

    1. I hope that you are now getting the medical care that you need.

    2. I think that many Americans (including me) are worried about the quality of care that we would receive from some (many?) "public workers."

    3. Here in Los Angeles, we once had a hospital funded by the government (I shan't name it) that gave such horrible care that our local very liberal (AKA Democratic party) newspaper led the demand for its closure. Some patients did not get treatment because the technicians did not know how to run the machines! Some doctors checked in for the day and then left the premises! The receptionists were rude and indifferent! Reportedly, police officers told their buddies: "If I am ever wounded, don't take me to Killer [name of hospital]!"

    4. Generally speaking, private enterprise seems to deliver the best service. If, for example, Amazon customer reps were "public workers," I doubt that Amazon would offer such high-quality customer service.


    Have a nice new week!

Moon needs to focus on that more since many people are suffering and dying from it. That is another reason we need Bernie in America because he cares about the environment more than Trump. Environment issue is getting too serious!!
    China and India are the worst environmental polluters because they are also the two highest populated countries in the world. The USA is 3rd, and our population is projected to top 400 million by 2050. How can we increase environmental regulations, while simultaneously needing to add tens of millions of jobs to the workforce, to accommodate a nation of 400 million people?

    President is important to your life. The government affects every single part of your life. I think you got cynical because this American government really didn’t help individuals so much.

    I'm not worried about myself; I have saved money since I began working at 16, and invested a percentage of what I've saved. Of course, anything can happen. What I'm really concerned about, is the future economy and quality of life in a country of 400 million people who will suddenly find themselves jobless, due to outsourcing American jobs, and the coming automation age.

    1. Thank you. Here in Korea, getting X-rays is very chip. It was over 300 dollars in America so I couldn’t get X-rays there when I fell from stairs and broke my bone.

    2. Quality in health care in Sweden seems to be working well. You can research it by yourself

    3. That is the reality of public schools in America as well. Huge gap between neighborhoods. Public hospital itself is not a problem. The government who manages it has no will due to the corruption.

    4. Public workers in America are usually depressed maybe because American society doesn’t make people happy in general. Life in America is a struggle. Public workers in other countries are different.

    More sustainable jobs can be created with new energy system.

    Thank you very much for your thoughtful comments.

    I am so glad that you are receiving the care that you need.

    I have read that "public workers" in some countries are even worse than some here in the States. That is, I have read that one must give bribes to get service in some countries (which, of course, I shan't name).

    Here in the States, some postal workers used to be very rude and even lazy. With the advent of email, some postal workers have realized that their jobs are at stake, so there has been some improvement in their behavior.


    Have a nice day!

    Healthcare works quite good here in Germany and I don´t want to miss it

    may be each country has it´s own best solutions

    there are good and bad examples for both systems

    Since the public train system in Britain was privatized, it´s completely ****ed up. They did not invest and let the rails get rotten because they had only interst in quick money.

    Some parts of public live shall in no way be private in my opinion. Like water supply and other essential things for living.

    I am glad you have a good health care system in Germany. America will get a good one as well with the lead of Bernie Sanders. Health related matter should be public, I think.
