I just saw this bumper sticker about an hour ago and I had to do a double take. I couldn’t believe how idiotic it sounded.
Does the right wing seriously believe health care is MORE expensive under the European/Single Payer system??
There’s a reason why every single person is covered under their system – even foreigners, tourists, and the like. Because everyone pays into the system, via taxes.
It’s not free – but it sure isn’t more expensive than our system, which will wipe you out within a matter of weeks or months, the moment you start receiving your bills. And that’s if you’re lucky enough to avoid getting canceled by your carrier.
I wonder what their bumper stickers would say if we didn’t have VA Medical Care, Social Security or Unemployment Insurance?
