it becomes clear that you don't understand socialism either.
you appear have the same view as Warren appears to have.
socialism means everyone with money paying for all those without money...
he sees that as bad, you clearly see it as good.
I see that as terrible, and it's not socialism, basically, if you take money away from all those who can afford stuff based on their hard work, you take away any motivation to work.
the point is that it should be a shared responsibility,
I'm not bi---ing about the healthcare in this country because I don't have a good job and can't afford it because like I said earlier, I get my healthcare for free through the VA as a disabled Iraq war vet. I still think it's jacked up though that suzie Q and her son can't go into a hospital and get long term care for little johnny because she doesn't have health insurance nor the money to pay for it. Healthcare should be a basic human right.
I agree with you, healthcare and access to medicine SHOULD be a basic human right.
but in order to guarantee that basic human right you have to be quite adult and sensible about it...
basically, if you want free healthcare, you need to be prepared to pay for it.
that means not dodging your taxes.
same as if you want nice roads to drive on, you need to realise that the money to resurface them has to come from somewhere.

you can't just tip up in Britain and get free surgery.
When you make contributions you do so against a national insurance number,
when you receive treatment that's essentially be against a national insurance number...
So people travelling throughout the world will still need travel insurance.
