Well, not that funny, but to those a****les that pee themselves, when someone mentions socialism!! I’ve lived in Sweden all my life and I can afford healthcare ($20) and my kids medicines (free for kids under 16). Yeah Socialism is a very baaaaaad thing! (Idiots)

UK resident here.

My son was hospitalised and had to spend five days there while having numerous scans, including an MRI scan.

The cost to us for the *entire stay* including ambulances was zero. Zilch. Nada.

Well, actually it was the large tin of chocolates I bought for the Nursing staff that looked after him and brought him his meals. Which I also didn’t have to pay for.

I’ll gladly pay taxes for your care, because I know you’re paying taxes for mine.

I don’t care if the Scandinavian countries use socialism or they use a different system. What I do know is it works well and America needs to study what they’re doing.

Twice in 5 days I woke up in a hospital to finding out I had seizures In my sleep. Total cost of neuroeval, ambulances, and scans $35,000.

I was 16 when it happened and I just finished paying it back at 24. Waking up to $35,000 of debt in a first world country.

Canadian here.

Had to have emergency surgery a few months back. 3 days and 2 nights in the hospital. Meals for about 1.5 of those days. Had a surgical team of approximately 10 people working on me.

$0 to me at the end of my stay.

Fun note, I still pay less in taxes than the higher tax brackets in the USA.

Tell me again why healthcare for all is a bad idea?

Why not tax corporations instead of individuals?

Why don’t you just go rob a bank, they can afford it. Same logic right?

Except that none of it is “socialism,” including in Sweden. Sweden is a capitalist, free-market economy that happens to have a higher level of taxation in exchange for a more robust social safety net.

Gimme a break. Taxing someone isn’t Socialism. Even Republicans and Libertarians favor some taxation.

This is the least funny post I’ve seen on r/PoliticalHumor. It’s just a played out soapbox rant an dan overly long title.

Yeah, I agree with it, but isn’t it supposed to be funny?

While I agree with the sentiment (and I’ve upvoted the same exact picture like 5 times before on this sub), this title is absolute cancer

Same country that put a black man in jail with no bail because he defended himself against a muslim stalker?
