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.

Well, im my country, public health care is a example that is not impossible in big contry, the is nothing like "is too big"
the SUS (Universal health system) do ALL the procedures, from wound dressing to organ tranplants, for free
yes, there is a line, but any brazilian can use the system, at any time in any part of the country

Our country is just too big, It is the 4th biggest country AND it is split into 50 states (If you don't count DC and all the islands we own) So Socialized healthcare would be hard.

perhaps socialized medicine may work in smaller countries (although i have seen that there a lot of problems in england like people not even being able to recive health care at all, it may work in isolated instances but not over an entire nation. HOWEVER! dont get me wrong i actualy want all people to get health care but i dont think socilazied medicine is the best idea, we should come up with a less tax reliant alternative

The public healthcare system in Finland pretty much sucks... but it's free because we too have high taxes!

...We always go to privates.

Oh, and Russia's cat is cute. ^^
