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.

Any sane person with compassion would hate the American system

A lot of Americans think the same way about the American healthcare system. Why, oh why, can't I live in a civilized country?

The Welsh accent is so different from the Irish one.

As an American, I would love a similar health system to what European countries have, but there is a downside. Unfortunately there are people here (mostly Republicans) that hold contempt for professionals whose salary is financed through taxes, such as teachers, simply because they are paid with taxpayer money. If we adopted that system, I would imagine a few outspoken groups holding protests against doctors, like what has happened in the past few years with teachers.

@Robertjhsmith: None of the characters are meant to be accurate representations of the inhabitants of their countries. They're essentially based on stereotypes -- those the ones in the given country have about themselves, as well as the ones that all other countries have about them. With a bit of extra derp for comedy's sake.

The male America represents the stereotypical Republican. Female America represents the stereotypical democrat.

It's the same in Canada for our healthcare system, and our taxes aren't that unreasonable. :/
