    I just can't understand why people are so against having social healthcare. I really can't. To me, it seems fundamentally immoral and unethical to exclude people from being able to access medical care based on their financial circumstances.
    The thing that gets me is even if you ignore the ethics of the situation, it is still fucking insane financially.

    The US government spends more money per capita on healthcare than we do - for which we get universal coverage and they get some coverage for children and the retired. So they are already spending loads of tax dollars on a system that is really rather terrible, and most people then need exhorbitant and not particularly comprehensive health insurance on top.
