What’s it like to not worry about going to the doctor, or dentist, or ending up on the street in your old age?
Ask Ivanka? Not interested in asking her.
Ask Swedish citizens!
Yes, ask a Swedish citizen. Read up and dream about it. Life can be different on planet Earth, and guess what? Capitalism exists there too.
After age 20 in Sweden, for instance, dental care is the most expensive care you have to pay for. Sweden demands that you pay a whopping $345 dollars in a year, before the State steps in and pays for the rest.
All medical services, including emergency care or going to a specialist, the citizen has to pay an equivalent of $20 for a general doctor visit, and $40 to see a specialist or receive emergency treatment. These co-pays accrue up to a whopping $145 equivalent, and then the State steps in and pays the rest.
Damn. Imagine THAT worry taken off your back and expense? Imagine how much more FREEDOM you would experience in life in general? In changing jobs, moving to a different State, etc?
This whole notion of “freedom” needs a serious update among the masses in this country.
It’s amazing that the arguments that this country can’t go this route get very fucking tired.
Oh yes, the Swedish State isn’t involved in Empire building for corporate interests and slaughtering people all over the globe 24/7, ostensibly “protecting our freedoms”.
My bad. Carry on.
Dreaming of Sweden. I’ll just buy some warm clothes and adjust to the climate, thank you.
