My homeland of Taiwan has a single payer healthcare system which is famed for its affordability and Western levels of care and service. Canada also, though conservatives want to market their for-profit healthcare systems as superior to all the rest of the world. You’ve already heard the stats about how behind the US is for overall health and GOP hardheads spew the stereotypes which are ridiculous to everyone else, but here’s something to make you smile.
Dr. Danielle Martin schools Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) on national healthcare. Dozens of articles repeat the delicious exchange. For audio, see “Canadian doctor schools U.S. Senator on public health care“.
I could go on & on abut how conservatives are paid off by healthcare and pharmaceutical lobbyists but worse than legalized corruption is how Americans are too lazy to lobby their representatives (thus lobbyists work) & won’t want to change the system until they’ve a $10,000 doctor’s bill. And even then, they’re too lazy to do much other than fight a menial fight with the insurer. Don’t be that person.
