I just wanted to put this video here, very informative about how healthcare works and where's the problem about the discourse about it in the US:
Long story short, it's not just about the healthcare in and itself, much more goes on around that isn't mentioned (and often forgotten by foreigners since we don't really think about that stuff).
I take umbrage at some parts of that video.
Firstly, the English healthcare system is shit and the Japanese one is one of the best in the world? no. Granted I lived in one of the most affluent areas of England, so maybe the service is worse in poor areas, but even then in England you get healthcare. Have no money/job? No problem. They won't even ask, you'll get your healthcare free just like anybody else. In Japan if you want healthcare, they'll be like "money please". Which is just like "why the fuck am I paying monthly for a health insurance card if I'm just going to be charged again when I actually want healthcare?" Stupid system.
Secondly, why does it portray better food health/safety requirements as a bad thing? I mean, the government should be making sure companies don't put dodgy unhealthy shit in the food they sell regardless of whether the country has a public health care system or not.
Thirdly, how big of an issue is the matter of funding anyway though? Yeah, I'm sure some people would kick up a fuss about an extra tax. But let's be honest, the majority of people would be paying less in taxes to fund a public health care system than they currently pay for private health care.
Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
