You fail to recognize freedom as part of the medical care.



That is built in with the French system, freedom from worrying
how to pay for medical bills. I suffer from an incurable lung
disease which will eventually kill me. The Secu has assigned
me special status, 100% coverage. So I don't pay anything for
the 600 euro a month for the oxygen I must have.

It STILL has a state funded system for healthcare.....


"...lengthening queues and at times inconsistent care have prompted

So?
They have choice and no Swedes go without care


Private healthcare is capitalism.... not socialism.

Your labels don't mean a thing to the patient receiving the care

Check out the per capita rate of lung transplants US vs, France. I did
once to enlighten the Socialist, American ex-pat, Evleth, but google
should be able to help you retrieve it also.

That should give you an idea of the rationing inherent in your Euro
style Socialized medicine schemes but like Evleth, I doubt you will be
able to relate to it let alone admit it due to your religious- like
fanatacism.

It should also give you an idea as to why we American might chose to
spend a portion of our greater per capita GDP on more advanced
medical techniques than your Your-A-PeonSocialist brethren but I
doubt you will be able to perceive that either.

AliASS finally admits he lied still again when he stated healthcare
is FREE for EVERYONE in Spain.

Communism
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Communism

"Communism (from Latin communis - common, universal) is a
revolutionary socialist movement...." (first words of first sentence)

If you think the Wiki definition is wrong, Calder, they encourage
correction of errors and good luck with changing their definition.

Let us know how you make out with changing that wiki definition,
Calder.

Your friend, like you are, is a financial illiterate, AliASS.

Hospital bills are not collateralized . Therefore, no assets would be
at risk for non payment.

If the hospital bills were simply ignored and not paid, the worst
that could happen to your friend is his mother's credit could be
affected negatively .

And even there some hospitals don;t even bother to report non payments
to credit bureaus due to the large volume of uncollectibles
and the clerical effort involved in reporting them

The proof is always in the pudding: Sweden and 36 other Marxist

It should also give you an idea as to why we American might chose to
spend a portion *of our greater per capita GDP on more advanced
medical techniques than your Your-A-PeonSocialist *brethren but I
doubt you will be able to perceive that either.


You can do your part to help keep health costs down by refraining from
eating so much junk food and getting some exercise.

Bret Cahill


The Myth of Americans' Poor Life Expectancy

'Its one of the most oft-repeated justifications for socialized
medicine: Americans spend more money than other developed countries on
health care, but dont live as long. If we would just hop on the
European health-care bandwagon, wed live longer and healthier lives.
The only problem is its not true....

....Life expectancy is an appealingly simplistic, but deeply flawed,
way to think about the quality of a countrys health-care system.
After all, shouldnt good health care make you live longer? Well, yes,
but. The problem, of course, is that there are many factors that
affect life expectancy...."
