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.

Hahahahaha.......... To be honest, I really like the Scandinavian health care system better than the American one.

Yeah it's pretty messed up to be honest, the US really needs a single-payer system to take care of it's people. But eh, greedy people always end up in power.

I'd like to say that you're actually misrepresenting the American healthcare system. We don't have a lot of the preventative medicine that European countries have. You get regular checkups if you have healthcare and want it. Hospitals are the major stumbling block. Basically, there's a law saying that hospitals can't turn away patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Because of this, any losses get charged to patients who can. This is far more screwed up than a simple payment for treatment methodology. It's great on a humanitarian level, but it leaves the people with insurance out to dry. If I trusted a government with running good cradle to grave healthcare, I would actually prefer it to our current system, but America is a great example of what happens when the government gets its his hands in too deep on spending. The American government is unable to spend responsibly and is overly sidetracked by special interests.

The American health care system is so broken, it makes me sad. If you can't find a full-time job (which is common; now, people tend to have two part-time jobs, both of which aren't required to give you health care coverage), you're on welfare. Period. And the welfare system is awful. Very, very long waits, rude and incompetent doctors, etc. It comes across as though if you're not making enough to afford decent health care, you're not worth putting money into to fix so that you can possibly function well enough to get a better job. I'd prefer a system that puts more faith in its people, please. Thanks. -_-`

In America your employer typically supplies health insurance. You can also get it on your own. Plus there are tons of charity hospitals so it's not like no one gets turned away for not being able to pay.

Sometimes the healthcare system seems so archaic.
