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.

Even though we pay so much in taxes, we still have plenty of money to life decent lives. The minimal wage in Scandinavia is very high and we have something i think is called "top tax" that makes rich people pay a higher % in taxes. That makes the gap between poor and rich much more narrow than most other countries. So i don't mind the way our economy are handled. Having less poor people also helps reduce crime.

As an American I find brother America's behavior painfully accurate (^^;;

Paying a high tax is nothing bad if society as a whole benefit from it a lot.

Sadly, this is true. When I get sick or injured, the type of healthcare I use is "deal with it". Also, I'm pretty sure that Russia hasn't been communist for a long while. But I guess I can't expect America to know that >_<

Most of the people I know hate our healthcare too. The thing is our country was literally founded by rich people complaining about having to (among other things) pay taxes

Our healthcare is the best in the world (for the rich people). And don't even start about tyrant king Obama of the Health Care Communist Party!
