Everything is relative


Norwegian hospitals are free though. I was just surprised the first time I learned Norwegians pay at all to visit the doctor because I assumed we had the same system.

Anyone who claims the US system is good is either ignorant or lying. It has been demonstrated over and over that a single-payer, universal system will lower costs for every American and give us better outcomes. We have to resources to make a switch, we lack the balls.

But what can you expect from the U.S.A.? After all we have to to maintain our number 1 shithole country status.

Donald Trump: We in USA has the best hospital care!
The rest of the world: But only rich people in USA gets good hospital care! Everybody, poor or rich, African or European, a kid or an old man or woman, you gotta get god hospital care.

I must admit I literally LOL when I got to the 3rd panel. Its such a tragedy that that country is handicapped by a system that seems designed to make money for insurance and medical groups rather than give treatment to patients. :(

Who wants a American president that CARES about the people? America has never been "good" if you ask me. First was the African slaves that where treated like shit, later kapitalists and now the hospital's.
I'm wonder how you can be so damn proud over a big country with big problems? USA has maybe beautiful nature and wildlife, but the politics isn't beautiful it all.

Free hospitals down here. Not the best but they can patch you up. People shouldn't suffer illness, wounds and medical paybills :(

And Australia, which has a good health system, Right-wing idiots want the awful US system instead, just so they and their mates can make immoral profits out of it.

Oh, it reminds me one situation in chat
Norwegian guy: I can explain...
American: You have free hospitals?! I have to pay for medical care even if I`m injured!
Me (Serbian): You guys have to pay for every single visit to doctor? We have medical insurance but we need to pay a tax for it.

You guys have hospitals?- asked a dude from Iraq.

*groans* With the crappy health plan offered by my job, I have to pay a $3000 (~27,500 NOK) deductible before it covers *anything*.

Good thing contempt for the system isn't counted as a pre-existing condition...

We have a medical system monster, limiting how many doctors we can teach each year and refusing foreign credentials while forcing so much paperwork on hospitals that small clinics can't handle it and have to join up with the big chains that can.

Guess that America thinks that it is free to go to hospital is bullshit. In Sweden it is just free to go to hospital if you are a kid, if you are adult it costs, but not so much. Operations costs a little bit more then normal hospital visits.
In America (learn to say USA!) you must be rich to get good care on a hospital. When I first heard it I was like "American kapitalistic idiot's".
Am I'm the only that wants Obama back? He was intelligent and if you ask me one of the best presidents in USA's history. Bernie Sanders was also very good, hehe, we in Sweden wanted Bernie, and if we voted it would be Bernie to hundred procent.

Why did I begin to talk about presidents for USA?
