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.

As an American, I'm sad to say that this is actually a very popular view on our healthcare system. I think it's completely broken and needs a complete overhaul... HELP US PLEASE!!!!

It’s become sooooo much worse in the US since this was first posted.

Would gladly pay the higher taxes if it meant no more debt from medical bills.

tbf even the American populace feels that way about the American healthcare system. Or so that is the general feeling I get when I talk to other working-class Americans. xD It's our government, which is run by a majority of selfish rich white guys, wh don't want it to change. :/

What's worse is that the average American is gullible enough to believe when a politician displays universal healthcare in a negative light by saying "Well, you'd have to pay higher taxes if you want this." while also failing to mention that Universal Health Care also dismantles the need for Insurance because if everyne is paying for it in taxes, why would yoou need to also pay for health insurance?

Sure, Taxes would be more expensive, but payinng more for one and dismantling the other is better than paying for both. :T

Health care is only free in Scandinavian countries if you earn less than $20000 a year. also to pay for health care the governments tax on average 48%, not to mention you would not be able to pay for health care if you had to pay for military the US gives you for free. Oh also that $20000 after Sweden's 60.4% taxes is $7,880.
