Incidentally, to get 'free' full coverage healthcare for a family in Japan, costs around 850 a month. Mind you, Japanese make almost everything they consume. They really don't need to import anything (as opposed to say, a place like AU or CA which have to import nearly everything, fMRI machines, EGC, etc.... ). Also, Japanese are relatively healthy. They're also relatively honest. You don't see many Japanese pretending to have neck pain to get a little kickback (like you see AU, CA or the USA). As soon as welfare and workman's comp ended, Americans suddenly had 'neck pain' and went onto disability - as an example. I personally know 3 people who worked for GM, retired on their sweet benefits, and then suddenly had 'shoulder' or 'neck' or whatever pain, and get a kickback. I've known Australians who'd 'hurt me thumb' and got on lifelong disability - which is insane, but whatever. Not so common now, but was more so during the 'free' money boom, mining boom. So? How much for full coverage / free healthcare in the USA? In our scammy multicultural obese drug-ridden society of mixed honest workers and sloth bullshitters, we'd probably have to double that to around 1500 a month. That'd probably be the equivalent price. As in, it probably costs that much in real world production and service costs - given, in the real world, goods and services actually don't pop into existence from the ether - but need to be produced (and are purposefully limited by Givermint). Not to mention Japan has many more practitioners compared with the USA. More licensees per population. Oh, and in Japan it's not uncommon to have father-son private hospitals, which generally work better in terms of services provided when compared to just any old affirmative action licensee. I mean, it's a family business and if you suck, you'll bring shame on your father - who provided you with the hospital. Believe it or not, but in monocultureal societies, like Japan, social standing 'socialism' is enforced privately through voluntarism / social ostracism - a much much MUCH more effective means of 'regulating' behaviour when compared to a multiple choice test and tick in a box. How does 'free' healthcare that costs around 1500 a month in forced taxation sound? Reasonable? Not 'free' enough to vote for B.Sanders? I mean, he DID mention the middle class would have to have another tax hike, he just didn't mention the real amount all the 'free' ends up costing.
