Healthcare


How most Scandinavians feel about the American healthcare system. :XD:

In Scandinavia we pay for healthcare though our taxes, which means we all pay for each other, and nobody thinks twice about going to the doctor because we’ve already paid for it. We also have private care for those rich people who don't want to wait in line.

But before you declare the American system “OMG!!! EVUL!!!”, remember that we Scandinavians also pay the highest taxes in the world.

We up her like it the way it is, but you Americans will have to decide for yourself.

I have an American friend who thought Finland as communist country partly because of Finnish healthcare and tax system and to be honest it was a little offensive to me. Last thing we Finnish people want is to be related with communism, Soviet Union or Russia. After Winter War (1939-1940) and Continuation War (1941-1944) with Russia during WWII we Finns have tried to take distance to Russia as much as possible. I think we have some kind of special hate and fear mentality towards Russia. Most of Finns does not like Russia and are suspicious towards them but at the same time we are afraid of them and don't want to offend Russia at any mean. Maybe that's also the reason why we are not part of UN.

You just can't make joke at Finns and claim they are communists and ruled by Russia. If there had been Finland on last section with Norway, Denmark and Sweden, you all would have been dead by now. That's serious topic for us Finns. ;) :D

Being American, this is all too funny because you either hate the system or you love it... there is no in between. Plus commie jokes never get old!

I like the argument that the US's medical system isn't the best, as it is not, but it is fundamental to the practice and development of medical technology as such market in personal expense opens the market for innovation in such field. I am not saying it is the most forgiving of systems that possess the luxury of free medicare, but there are high points to the system that the US follows, and I don't find it amusing that we are ridiculed on being broken as America's efforts can only be described as weak. My nation's efforts, though embarrassing I am all prepared to admit, are not done in complete vain. Ridicule us, that is valid, but don't slander our efforts in dismissal just yet.

As an American, I'm sad to say that this is actually a very popular view on our healthcare system. I think it's completely broken and needs a complete overhaul... HELP US PLEASE!!!!
