I'd rather have free doctors than free lawyers.

The last time I went to the hospital the bill was over 1,000$

Went in an ambulance and stayed for a few hours. That's it.

American healthcare ranks about the same to other modern countries in quality and is actually superior in efficiency in terms of cost, but it's many times more expensive.

Speaking of which, it can all be paid for if we divert the tax money for it. The government wastes so much ******* money it's sickening. Our debt is spiraling out of control and our paper currency is inflating. My goodness... it feels hopeless sometimes.

tl;dr With an economy like this, just getting a severe fever could cost you hundreds if not thousands. Jobs are nowhere to be found... Ah. The American dream is dead.

In the lawyer situation, you do not have to pay, but you do in your situation

it's funny, cause you have no idea how the american system works. you get treated, if you can pay or not, no matter what.

>get treated no matter what
>obviously not counting the people who die because the doctors won't treat them because their insurance won't pay for it

Try backing it up with facts and evidence retard, or no one will take you seriously.
#347 to #332 - anon (12/31/2012) [-]
depends on what's wrong with you. If it's life threatening, the only thing they have to do is make sure you won't die immediately and throw you out the door. Basically, if you get shot, they'll stitch you up and throw you out

As a proud American citizen this post does not anger me. Nor should this image anger Europeans. It's all in good humor, and pointing out faults is always funny when its not happening to you. Therefore we should all just laugh and keep moving. Remember, the real prejudicists(or something) are the ones that complain about it.

it all goes back to each country has thier views of other countries be it what it really is or not. thats culture for ya and we will never fully understand each other....hell its hard enough to understand out own culture sometimes lol. all you can do is laugh about it.

You're ******** me right?

My mother is a nurse at a smaller hospital in Washington. Every tom, dick, and jane that walks in, regardless of their problem or health insurance, is required to be treated, by law.

So, end result is all these poor, welfare ***** who don't give a damn about anything but their beer and having sex with their cousins will show up to the emergency room for anything, including sniffles, a minor rash, light cough, you name it.

******* leaches should just die in a gutter...

It's not. Since when was the government here to pay you welfare? Or pay your medical bills? It's here to make sure you can go off and your own and forge your own life, not do that for you.

The government should only be there for the RICH and the WHITE. And those mentally ill POOR bastards who dont know how to work get given money? What absolute cunts, being given money.

Maybe I wouldn't have a problem with the hole welfare system crap if half the nation didn't abuse it? The government should be there for anyone. If you can't make a life for yourself then tough **** .

Except not at all..... Hospitals treat people that don't have insurance all the time. (My mom works in healthcare I think she knows her **** )
User avatar #254 to #190 - sovereignsunkown (12/30/2012) [-]
but it IS very difficult for people who have serious chronic illnesses and are unable to be insured. it really wouldn't be that much of an increase on taxes, especially if more of the weight was put on the highest tax bracket (come on, lets admit that 32% income tax on people bringing in millions upon millions a year is a little low, they functioned fine under the 78% tax rates of the 1960s and live lives beyond excess anyways)

Basically this. I hate all this eurotrash around me who have no ******* insight in the American healthcare system. I've given up on trying to explain to them that they are wrong, but... you know. Eurotrashers gonna trash. Can't wait to get out of this psuedo-commie ******** .

User avatar #376 to #361 - richardastley ONLINE (12/31/2012) [-]
The money American hospitals save ******* over ~10 million people usually goes toward research (not solely I'm sure, but a good portion will), and as a result, America has the best medical research in the world. A minority suffers for the greater good of the rest of the world. Medical fascism benefits us all (as the cynic would say).

Now, if you may read the first 			*******		 sentence of the article, you will see a disclaimer stating that the hospitals are ranked only in "web presence."    
   
Therefore, you are either too goddamn stupid to notice the obvious editor's note or too goddamn stupid to care. Either way you are both wrong and stupid.

I don't know, America has the best doctors by far. If anyone needs a serious surgery they always come to america, i never see people traveling to europe to see a doctor.

*Also, it sounded funny in my head.
#67 to #23 - anon (12/30/2012) [-]
no? the top of the line european doctors are either making private clinics in europe (seeing as almost everyone country in the european union has free healthcare because were not selfish bitches, theres more money in private clinics), or they go to america to work for 100x the pay they got in europe. so yes, might be america has some of the best doctors in the world, though they are rarely american. and you can google that.
