European healthcare is a lot better than you understand. It's a lot better than your politically motivated sources will admit. Also they still have private options if necessary. If it were trash and people weren't getting help other than in isolated anecdotal situations it wouldn't be so popular. I have been to the UK, Denmark and Sweden. I have talked politics with people and have expressed the point of view U.S right wingers have in regard to their healthcare. The people that live there laugh at the shit you say because you're ignorant. They are not ignorant; you are. No system is perfect, including theirs. You could find horror stories and anecdotes to push any position in politics. That's all that's being done in the articles you use to reinforce what you already believe. The fact of the matter however is that their public options do a lot of good for people that need it, and the public would never support the removal of public options. That will never happen, ever. Keep shouting from the rooftops that their system will fall apart any minute. Shout until you're blue in the face. They're laughing at you though. Public healthcare in Europe will never go away. It's only a matter of time until we do something similar.
