Hmm, gonna put one point out there...
Everyone always wants free stuff and wants to have the best treatment for people.
We all scoff at amazon employees being treated like shit, being overworked and all that jazz.
But we also want our free shipping the next day, we want our stores to be open on weekends and holidays and available after working hours.
we want our commodities delivered at very cheap prizes,....
While free healthcare seems like a no-brainer, it won't really be free. It would just mean that taxes will need to be increased and everyone will be paying for anyone's healthcare.
In Europe, I feel we have a lot of taxes, which I don't mind paying for myself as we get lots of good stuff in return. But even living in (one of) the most taxed country in the world, I get constant reminders how we're up to our necks in debt and even through all this, how many faults there are in all of the infrastructures and how often budgets need to get cut left and right, resulting in crazy circumstances.
Being a bit of a devil's advocat, since I definitely hope the American system won't take over in europe when it comes to healthcare or any other form of privatisation. But i can imagine why it's a model that exists and Europe might not be far from adopting stuff either.
