Healthcare system?

In America you have people die because they can’t afford medical treatment so why don’t Americans want a free healthcare system to ensure the most vulnerable members of your society are provided for? You pay a lot for private health insurance and your hospitals are profit driven and don’t deliver adequate levels of care.

    Because they are brainwashed by the right wing into believing their government, of the richest country in the world can't afford it.

    The ridiculous thing is that the American government spend more on their health care, which millions of people have no access to than countries with a universal system. A recent report by the Koch brothers backed Mercatus Center at George Mason University, which examined the potential costs of the Medicare for All Act found that the government would save money with such a scheme.

    So the claim of not being able to afford it simply does not stand up to scrutiny on any level.

    So when that argument fails with those with enough intelligence to see this, then the right wing drag out the words socialism and even communism in an attempt to spread fear stop the American people from seeing healthcare as a basic human right, as the people in every other modern industrialised do.

    Perhaps they want those who can't afford treatment to die. Some Americans are really strongly against the idea of anyone getting anything for free that they can't afford.

    Itll on be truly free for the people who dont pay for it. The people who work have to pay for everyone else. Its not as simple as free. Even in Canada they pay for insurance, its not free, they pay a yearly fee. Its only free for the people who cant afford it

      I’m Australian and Medicare is free for all here. We don’t pay anything to have surgery, hospital stay for to visit the doctor. Working people pay a 2% Medicare levy out of their wages. Cancer patents get their treatment free here but in America if you can’t afford treatment you die.
