americans too fat for free healthcare. the goverment can't afford it
2019-03-06 18:12
nice stereotype. But only 24 million people are over weight out of 327.46 million people so your argument is lost.

'An estimated 160 million Americans are either obese or overweight. Nearly three-quarters of American men and more than 60% of women are obese or overweight. These are also major challenges for America's children – nearly 30% of boys and girls under age 20 are either obese or overweight, up from 19% in 1980.'

nobody except for americans cares about healthcare in usa so this thread is useless
2019-03-06 18:15
then why did you comment?
2019-03-06 18:16
to tell you this
2019-03-06 18:16
Try finding some empathy. I want my fellow man to do well, so seeing how bad things are in the US of course means something. Not saying that people in many other places are worse off, but that doesn't make me not care for the people in the US. Maybe it matters more because I know people that live there, but I think it is more that I know more about how things are there. Some things are like amazing, but there is a lot wrong as well with health care being one of the bigger issues.

You don’t need a fucking video to explain, use common sense: 325 million people Care becomes rationed Quality of care is lowered People in turn die on waiting lists Taxes skyrocket — people will go broke either way Anyone that thinks it will work in America just because it works in nations with a fraction of America’s population is literally smooth brained. Plus PragerU is normie as fuck and only retards cite from there because they have not even a modicum of intelligence.

30 million without even decent care, many with insurance that avoid getting treatment due to co-payments, many that go bankrupt due to cost of health care, many that work like slaves due to fear of loosing work (= loosing health insurance for family), opioid crisis... yes the system is nearly perfect so why change. Also size argument is really stupid. Universal health care works well in big countries - Japan, Germany, UK (OK, mostly well), France combined match the population size of the US and they all have it. The cost of healthcare per capita in the US is like double of everywhere else, so if the system is changed to be more effective there will be plenty of money to not only cover everybody it can even be cheaper. But really it is better for the rest of us if the US keeps overpaying, since that means the US is really sponsoring much of what the rest of us benefits from when it comes to new drugs and such.
2019-03-06 19:01
But bro its not free
2019-03-06 19:16
No not free, nothing is ever free. However with a single payer system those with the power to get good prices for treatment, medicine and so on will have all the power. The suppliers will have to come with reasonable prices or risk a no sale, so the cost for everything will come down for the benefit of all except insurance companies and the medical companies. It is why health care in many countries outside the US can be done a lot cheaper even without lower quality and not leaving 10% of the population without coverage.

What does socialism have to do with free health care? Just because Canada has it does not mean the entire economic system gives free health care and capitalism doesn’t
2019-03-06 18:16
Congratulations you didnt watch the video
2019-03-06 18:17
Pure capitalism will never work in practice, it's nearly as bad as communism.
2019-03-06 18:18
Let me introduce you to the United States lmao
2019-03-06 18:18
not pure capitalism, we got taxes for gov services buddy. pure cap = no taxes

Pure capitalism is what people have always wanted(even socialistic states, that used to build "communism" are leaning towards Capitalism, just look at China). Everything we see around us is a result of pure capitalism being successful. But nothing is perfect. As for "free" healthcare, it's actually an example of Capitalistic states using their wealth(acquired due to Capitalism) for the sake of humanity. There are essential things that may be regulated by government and It doesn't make them socialistic, as Danish minister said. P.S. Yes, it's not really "free", however you can't deny the fact that this model of healthcare is cheap and much more obtainable for the average person, and at some point it's humane to take care of people this way. High taxes problem is debatable and it really depends on the particular country.

doesn't exists an free healthcare, in some way, everyone is paying for it.
2019-03-06 18:35
Notice how the video suggests that there needs to be a balance of capitalism and socialism. That is what we have here in Denmark and for those in the US scared of socialism here is a few things to consider: - The video talks about jobs as the cure to almost everything bad, but fails to include that those jobs must pay enough to make a living. Many in the US work and a only getting by on welfare like food stamps and/or having to work two jobs ie. the government is substituting Walmart and the like (=socialism). - The video also hints that socialism gets in the way of capitalism. Guess what - when the government does anything it is really socialism and it is good when the government makes sure the infrastructure works well, but government can also provide for education, health care, defense, police... that is done here and some of it is also done in the US. Here is some of the benefits we have from living in a country that capitalist, but also openly socialist. - Great social mobility. You chose your education based on interest and talent, not based on what you (or your parents can afford). So the American dream is actually more real here than in the US. - Better quality of life. Great work-life balance, even a McJob pays enough to live on working 37 hour weeks (with 5 weeks paid vacation, 1 year paid maternity leave...). - Because so many get good education they make good money and the country prospers. There is a plus on pretty much every financial indicator.

There was nothing in that video that would suggest that the US couldn't work under the same conditions that Scandinavian countries do. Scandinavians don't view their countries as socialist because they aren't.
2019-04-17 00:45
Let me explain, countries that use this don’t have militaries. The US does. ALSO the population is almost 100x most European countries. The taxation would just f almost all of the people who don’t make that much. It would fail miserably.

Does healthcare work in france : yes Does france have a popullation big enought to compare with USA : not equal but is ok enough : 67 to 327 million Does france have a military : Yes 5th in the world if i remember correctly Does that mean healthcare will work in usa ? not necessearly but it mean it could work
2019-04-17 01:19

The population argument is bullshit. The amount you pay is a % of your payroll. So if you make more money, you pay more and contribute more. Also, yes you have to pay for it, but its better and easier to organise your budget if you know you have to give 20k every year than paying an unplanned one time fee of 100k letting you broke. Yes you might make more money in the states, but you would never hace to worry about medical expense in Canada.
