Americans don't want an NHS style system because they don't want to pay into a system that could help their fellow Americans. They see this as cheating and don't want others to get "ahead" of them. They fundamentally don't believe in helping their fellow Americans they just like talking about it and fooling the world with fake smiles.

I am from a country where we have a system like this, my dad now worked for 30 years, goes to doc maybe once a year, the amount of money he paid so far to the mandatory medical care is enough to buy him a new house and a nice car. We are literally paying for other retards who dont want to eat healthy, cut on alchohol, cigarettes and all other unhealthy habits. Universal health care is retarded.

The only problem with national healthcare for all is, that the rich and the companies have to pay an ammount as well. In most countries with national healthcare you have to pay more, the more you earn. And it seems that wealthy people don't want to pay for the poor "peasants". Those dissocial people with money are the real problem.

True story ,take it for what it's worth. I was going on an overseas guided tour of London, Ireland and Scotland. On the day of my flight, my throat started to hurt and by the time i was airborne it hurt to swallow. I spent the entire 10 hour flight feeling like someone was stabbing my throat when i swallowed. I threw up four times on the flight. By the time i landed, i was barely hanging on physically. I decided to go to London's version of ER and saw about 9-10 people in front of me. I immediately felt frustrated because my experience with ER in the US was that i was going to be there at minimum 8 hours. To my surprise, i was seen within 15 minutes and told i had mild tonsilitis. I was prescribed a steroid and advised to walk about 15 minutes away to the nearest pharmacy. When I got there to fill my pharmacy and they asked me my date of birth, the prescription was wrong. When I first went to the ER and they asked me my date of birth i simply gave the numbers and didn't necessarily state the words. Well in London, they put they put it day/month/year instead of month/day/year. Given that the date of birth was wrong, i assumed they wouldn't be able to fill the prescription. Nope. they filled it no problem. So within about an hour, i had been seen by a medical professional, been given a diagnosis and filled a prescription. The only cost i had was the cost of the taxi ride to and from the hospital. I paid zero dollars and zero cents for the ER visit or the prescription.

Yes, Americans are people who like choices as if no one else in the world does not ! When it comes down to Your health the choice may be if you're going to live or not and whether you can afford to pay for an operation that may save your life or not ! The U.S. needs to catch up with the rest of the modern world and that would be a good choice !

Sorry I do not understand your system at all.. I am from Germany and if I have to go to the doctor I make an appointment and ok.. If it is a specialist I have to wait when it is not an emergency.. Say approximately 3 month bevor I get the appointment.. . If it is an emergency I would go to the emergency ambulance and the longest time I had to wait with my grandma suffering of a broken hand was 3 hours.. Was not nice.. Ok.. But there were a lot of people who had problems.. So that's life.. But we do not have to pay for anything... My 86 year old grandma also gets cancer treatments regularly.. Every three weeks she is going to the hospital for a infusion which normally costs nearly 2000 euro each... For nearly 2 years.. And the normal insurance covers this.. It's called immune therapy.. Everything is covered by her public insurance... And I have to say I have no problem to pay for other people so they get a good health treatment.. Perhaps somewhere along the way I will be in need too. In the moment I can work and I pay my taxes but who knows what will happens someday.... Perhaps I am unable to work and can't pay taxes any longer.. Than I want to be able to rely on the community to help me and my family... That is not communism that's called humanity... That's should be common sense

_The contents of the emails in Hunter Biden's laptop are not demonstrating that Joe Biden has acted as Obama's vice president in such a reprehensible manner that it ought to preclude him from becoming President of the United States. This should be assessed and judged by the People in the light of the Ukrainian background situation from which the emails emanate._ *The Hunter/Joe Biden Affair In Ukraine* Hunter told his father Joe Biden that Ukraine's Prosecutor General ("state prosecutor") was investigating a big gas enterprise (Burisma Holdings) that paid Hunter a huge monthly compensation to be on the company's board of directors. The state prosecutor had started asking questions about why, and especially for what, Hunter Biden received an extraordinarily high remuneration and whether it contained some form of miscreant service or was at least partially venal. In this context Joe Biden subsequently asked the Ukrainian incumbent leaders of that time (the President and the PM) to remove the prosecutor from office. They undertook a commitment to bring forward a proposal to that effect at the next assembly of the Ukrainian government. The state prosecutor, who was very experienced and known to be a man of integrity, had been called in from retirement by the Ukrainian government. His assignment was to investigate potential grounds for corruption charges against the top executives and directors of Burisma Holdings because of the company's seemingly corrupt dealings, including money laundering, with several obscure business partners. The government acknowledged that the prosecutor successfully had handled several similar corruption cases before and decided that no action would be taken against him. Joe Biden went therefore back to Ukraine to meet with government officials to formally request a swift dismissal of the state prosecutor. He stridently clarified, as Vice President of the United States, that the $1 billion in financial and military aid appropriated by the US Congress (partly as loan guarantees) will be paid out only if the state prosecutor was fired immediately. The government relieved at its next assembly the prosecutor of his assignment. *SOURCES:* ABC News began to vet the business dealings of the Bidens (also their extensive affairs in China) and met in Ukraine with the UCAC (Ukrainian Corruption Action Center): Wall Street Journal describes with Joe Biden's own words how he made his demand abundantly clear to Ukraine and that he had the full backing of President Obama: The former Ukrainian State Prosecutor Shokin provides his account of how it went down: *CONCLUSION:* It is a proven fact that Joe Biden requested that the then-President of Ukraine (Petro Poroshenko) to fire Ukraine's State Prosecutor (Viktor Shokin) who at the time led a wide-ranging corruption probe into Burisma Holdings and its senior executive counsel (Vadym Pozharskyi) when he accidentally stumbled over Hunter, a highly paid member of the Burisma board. When Poroshenko failed to terminate Shokin's assignment Joe Biden turned, in his capacity as Vice President of the USA, directly to the Ukrainian government and threatened to withhold said financial aid unless the prosecutor was fired. As a result of Joe Biden's assertive condition for receiving aid the prosecutor was removed from office in April 2016. *Given how Joe Biden implemented US official policy toward Ukraine, you should be able to form an opinion on whether you regard Joe Biden to be fit and suitable to serve as President of the United States.*

People who talk about longer waiting times makes no sense to me. If you show up to the ER and are badly injured or dangerously ill, you aren’t going to sit in the waiting room for hours and possibly die. That’s not how hospitals work. I’m a person who suffers from chronic illness and have been in hospital more than once in my life. When I was really sick, life-threateningly sick, it took less than 20 minutes from the time the call to 911 was made to me being treated by doctors. Everything was completely covered by my insurance. I didn’t pay for the ambulance ride, the hospital room, the meds they gave me, the food I ate while I was there. I didn’t pay for follow ups with specialists, or the physiotherapist that came to my house once a week for three months. I didn’t pay for the wheelchair I used for a while after, or the walker i use now. I don’t pay for the meds I still take every day. My family didn’t go bankrupt to support me. I never had to choose between food, clothes and rent or life saving medication. Even for other things that aren’t life threatening, I never had to wait a ridiculously long time. I understood that the reason I was waiting was because the doctors taking care of me prioritize people who are worse off and can’t wait. I understand the reason that a lot of waiting rooms have such long waits because people aren’t afraid to seek help. Some people are so used to having healthcare as a basic right, they go to the hospital or urgent care for small issues, like colds or minor injuries that could be treated by their family doctors. How is that somehow a bigger, scarier problem than people literally dying because they can’t afford basic healthcare?

Even im blessed livin in german Helthcare system, the Waiting time for getting a Apointment for a Specialist in Germany lacks from if youre a private Payer or a normal Healthcare. The People who have the "basic" Insurance often have to wait up to 3- 12 Months for a single Apoint , at least they want you. praivate Pay often get a Apointment next day or in few Days. Its Painfull, even our system has its pros , the cons are you hardly get an expert when you really have an chronic Illness that needs closer insprection. Time is allways highly limited they wont take things serios because they wont get paied enough. Its a lot like Next please. They in bad mood or unfriendly. I need a Pneumoligist for my Lung sickness , they wont even take new Partients under 6 Months , meanwhile my health issues getting more worse. Also my Insurance wont pay a clinic hospitalisation to have a checkup with more time about my Lung Problems whith my type of Sleep Apnea. This cant be only cared by a ear, nose, and throat specialist. They not really care about my struggle , as long you pay on private bill they suddely have time thread you like a king with private waiting room and other Threadment rooms. People run to Hospitals , because some of them are really ill. My Home Doctor close Door in few Months after 24 Years .. im a bit devasted this person has known my medical history like no one else. Starting over and also finding anew Doctor when they close is pretty hard for me. Even they take new Paitents I waited 8 Months for Sleep Lap , meanwhile i became very sick and the only thing i got told how fat i have become and should for my weight .... while i was eathing almost nothing anymore and healthy diet. My Body started to go rampe , in the waiting time. This happens when your Insurance company thinks ... Sleep Las are too expenssive and send you to ambulant screenings with doctors who cant care for your Lung issues . But they dont care , you need a pneumologist who has good agumentation. Its all about Paragraphs , who pays this etc... Germany has more and more US Ideas in they Health care systems. Take away the " useless threadments" from those who cant scream loud enough. Its all about the Money , even they Have more than enough of it, theres a BIg Bowl everybody pays in they can take from. But im glad i did not pay more than 20 € for my 2 Days in Hospital when i had Tachycardia , first time in my LIfe. And even before i rush a Emergency Doctor , i visited a local 24 h Dotor in my hometown, those send me to hospital for check up. EVen it turned out after 24 hours its not this bad , it was good they took care of me , it could have been serious Trouble with my Heart. My Heart was fine , it simply went crazy because of an infection and high fever , but felt still ok beside out of breath , dizzy and havin nausea , doc told me that a pretty good reaction of my Immune system, but scarry anyway. I was glad this got checked , im happy to know i wont need heart medicine or surgical stuff. Even its was so busy and i was so overloaded from the stuff going on around me , people haven been ver kind and i was a Jokebag cheering everybody up they came in my room that day ,while was on Heart Monitoring for hours. Beeing a easy Paitent helps the Nurses too.

re-watching this and I have a question, why is it good to have choice when the choice is between healthcare that is adequate and healthcare that is affordable? it's not like the current system lets you shop around for the doctor with the hottest nurses or the one that'll add an extra zing to that prostate exam, you're shopping around for the one that fucks you over the least, like why is choice always considered good?

I had a migraine so intense I had to skip work and go straight to an E.R. The hospital and Dr were in my network, but I had a $1K deductible, anything below $1k was on me, anything above was on them (As the insurance co. explained it to me). Weeks later I got a bill for the visit; $1600. I called them and they told me that even though their policy said they had to pay it, they justified it by saying "They negotiated it down" to a range that was legally on me. Fuck for profit insurance. They exist to cover OUR needs, NOT fill their pockets.

Now about that misconception of "long waiting" times in Canada, let me try to clear it up with a recent story about myself. So I faceplanted off of my bicycle about 2 weeks ago while commuting home. I live in Vancouver, the biggest city by population in the province of British Columbia on the west coast of Canada. I hit my face/head pretty badly, had a huge gash on my chin, a bloodied left eye, and had road rash all over my arms. Instead of calling an ambulance (which we can ride over here for free), I decided to walk over to the busiest hospital in the city (Vancouver General Hospital), because 1) it would probably take longer to wait for the ambulance (since I was like 3,4 blocks away from the ER), and 2) I didn't think my injury was severe enough to warranty an ambulance (yes, I'd rather let someone else with a more several injury use the ambulance that I may have taken up on - I assure you that this mentality will resurface again later in the story). When I got into the ER (again, this is one of the busiest hospitals in the city), within 10-15 mins, they had triaged me, put a neck brace on me, and was about to get me into CT scan to make sure there's no severe head trauma. Now after they had taken the proper scans and realized I had no severe head trauma, they removed my neck braces and gave me some fluids (even though I had barely lost blood). Now the waiting game started XD - it was almost 5 hours later before the doctor had time to stitch up my chin and sent me on my way with some pain meds. While I waited on the gurney, I saw them wheel in (at a min.) what seemed like two severe COVID patients, and quite a few other patients who all seemed to be in worse shape than me. Was I happy that I had to wait 5 hours before I could get stitched up to leave the ER? No. But, as someone with a science / critical-thinking background, I understood the need for triage - it's an emergency room at one of the busiest hospitals in the city, and there are patients who need medical assistance more urgently than me, as a few hours in delay for me getting stitches will not be life-threatening, but it might be for someone else who needed urgent care at that instance. Maybe this is the major difference between Canada and the US - I think the majority of us Canadians believe that how a society should be judged is on how we treat our most vulnerable, the weakest link in the chain so to speak. Up until Jan. of 2020 in BC, most of us had to pay a monthly premium for our provincial MSP (Medical Services Plan), and as a young person who has only ever been to the ER less than 3 times (up to this point), I used to question: why am I paying out of my pocket for someone else to get treatment? Only when I got older I realized, there's something called a society / community that we belong to - we all work together, pay taxes, contribute to build a better society for all of us, as no one lives in a vacuum. Does that sound like socialism / communism to you? Well then in that case, I'm proud to say that Canada is a more socialist country at least in our medical system, which we all value as one of the most important part of our country.

I’m always amused when I see Americans cite the U.K. as a country where national healthcare ‘doesn’t work’. Yeah, we wait a bit if it’s not too urgent. Yeah, we’ll complain about it sometimes - we’re bloody British, we complain about everything. But people don’t go bankrupt or mortgage their house because of a heart attack. We don’t have people putting off cancer treatment because they can’t afford it. It just doesn’t happen. The NHS has saved my life: I’m disabled and am still under investigation for the cause. I have had about 15 blood tests, 2 (soon to be 3) MRIs, 2 ophthalmologist appointments, 2 rheumatologist appointments, 25 ish chiropractor appointments, 3 months of twice a week physio appointments, 4 neurologist appointments and god knows how many GP appointments in 2 years. If I lived in America I would not be able to afford it, that is a fact. If this disease didn’t kill me then the depression from the pain I’m constantly in would have. Sometimes the only thing keeping me going is the fact that one day I will have a diagnosis. So yeah, the NHS isn’t perfect, but it’s definitely fucking better that whatever the fuck America has.

That Fox reporter, and your GOP politicians are flat out LYING TO YOU!!!!! You would NOT go broke with Medicare for all! Not even close! John Oliver isn't correct either. You pay DOUBLE per person than Canada currently pays, and many of you AREN'T getting any medical care - look it up!!!! You could pay 25% more than Canada pays per person, get a better healthcare system, and STILL pay 25% less than you ARE CURRENTLY PAYING. The only extra money would be the switchover. You pay SO MUCH right now, because you are paying fat cat private insurance companies profits! YOU CURRENTLY PAY MORE PER PERSON THAN WE, IN CANADA, PAY!!! And for any idiot who says that "socialist healthcare is a disaster," is once again, LYING TO YOU. Take a look at other countries debts in comparison to the USA. I think you'll be surprised. BTW, I don't think any of your people understand what it ACTUALLY is like in Canada. The only time you wait is: secondary/unnecessary operations, your first appointment with a specialist (but that isn't money, that's disorganization, and it needs to be corrected), and the emergency room IF YOU ARE THERE FOR A NON-EMERGENCY. I am very, VERY glad that I live in Canada, because I NEED my medical services. I like going to the doctor and not having to pay, going to get testing and not having to pay, and going to the emergency room for free, and getting operations for free. I'd be dead by now, if I didn't have it, and I think a LOT of Americans ARE dead because you've been lied to continuously. You want choice??? LIVING or NOT LIVING? PAY or NOT PAY out of pocket. Not a hard choice. And that, "Let Americans choose," was stupid, because you would have two separate public health insurances, it would be a mess - trust me. And it's foolish, pay out of pocket or don't pay. It's NOT A HARD CHOICE. What happened to the RIGHT TO LIFE, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness????? I don't think most Americans HAVE A CLUE how much medical expenses are there. I worked for an insurance company in Canada that handled Canadians who had medical travel insurance for going to the USA. A fricking ear infection was $15,000!!!!!! 20 YEARS AGO!!! A heart bypass was OVER $350,000 USD, and the guy wasn't covered because he had a pre-existing heart condition!!!!! In the USA, you can lose your house, your business, get your FUTURE income deducted to pay your bills, it can literally destroy you. And having extreme stress when you're already sick is a very good way to die. It seems the UK system is even better than we have in Canada, and I am VERY glad for our system here, believe me. You COULD have a public health system, similar to Canada or another country, then also have private hospitals/clinics, AS LONG AS THEY DON'T GET REGULAR PUBLIC MONEY. That way, rich people wouldn't have to wait for anything at all, even secondary operations, and it would take added strain off the public medical system. There, your rich people can still have their choice, if they are willing to pay out of pocket. I actually don't think that would be a bad idea here, as long as there is no regular public assistance (the goal is to take the strain off the public system). Where are system isn't great, it's not due to money, it's due to organization. For example, the very first referral to a specialist (at least if it isn't urgent, but you're relying on your regular doctor to catch that, which isn't a great idea) takes far too long (6 months in some cases), yet after that, you can make appointments at any time. Clearly, that means there is a delay in the referral system. Now, perhaps we need more specialists, but there are good ways to deal with that too. I personally think we should offer CANADIANS money to go to school, and build practices in rural areas. Say they have to have a practice in that rural area for at least a set period of time (10-20 years), if they leave before that, they have to pay the money back. I personally think that after the 10 year mark, what they would pay back should work on a declining scale. The idea is that they will build a life in that area during that time, and be less likely to move. In the meantime, we do what we are currently doing. Americans argue with each other too much, and what pisses me off is that they LIE to each other. They are so scared of this ridiculous word "SOCIALIST" - OOOOOOOH - that their irrational fear + the lies of politicians (and you let them get away with that shit FAR TOO MUCH - VOTE LIARS OUT!) don't allow them to see the REAL TRUTH, not an idealized version of either "side", and then work TOGETHER to get a good solution. The way the American political system works now, they will NEVER get a solution to anything! For example, showing ID to vote. I was surprised that you DON'T show ID to vote, especially with so many illegal immigrants from Mexico there. We have for as long as I can remember. It's not rocket scientist. It's much easier and faster to register and vote if you have ID, but then OF COURSE you should have options for people who have lost their ID. Maybe your existing procedure, maybe procedures that other countries use, or more likely, a combination of both. There, done. Why have you been arguing for YEARS about this???? It's just bullshit grandstanding ON BOTH SIDES, where the only people who benefit are the politicians and the special interest groups (especially their leaders) who get the spotlight on themselves. If there's all this bullshit grandstanding, how will anything get done??? Or Mitch McConnell blocking even a VOTE for Obama's pick for the Supreme Court for NO VALID REASON, which is clear since they are all going against the arguments they made then RIGHT NOW. WHY are Americans voting this man back in????? He's acting against ALL OF YOU, except the ultra rich! Same with any politician (GOP or Dem) who's going against Medicare for all (what should be a right). The thing is, you have to do your own research because almost ALL of your politicians are untrustworthy, because they have big business in their pocket, especially since this bullshit Supreme Court decision that ensured they can have unlimited contributions. They mostly don't represent you anymore. Look for the ones with small election budgets, and ones whose decisions have been to your benefit; those are the ones you can still trust. You're going broke with Donald Trump and his EXTREME DEFICIT (highest deficit EVER BY FAR, including the Obama administration to get the population out of the great recession, and that was BEFORE the Covid crisis).

y'all, coming back to this as an European. What are the choices that the propaganda machine is promoting? Like not once in my life did I feel the need to 'choose' stuff. It was always along the lines of something is wrong > go to doctor > fix wrong thing. I never felt the need to choose anything, nor did I feel any choice of mine. What choices do they think we'd be making? Asking honestly.

I don't mind waiting a couple hours to be seen in our NHS hospitals because I know that i will be cared for, I won't be charged a penny and I will be treated equitably. We funded the NHS after WWII, it cost alot more than anticipated, many doctors were against it and yet, the health of our nation improved unimaginably, our economy boomed with more productive healthy workers and it created 000s of jobs in the process. We are all urging the USA to go this way, no single British person thinks you shouldn't do it.

Literally the only debate over here is how much money it should get, ranging from 'it's fine where it is' to 'so much more'. We don't even want to cut its funding.
