I absolutely love this. Yet another example of the ignorance and fear-mongering that is permeating this debate:
Costa Rica has had a universal health care system since 1941. Compared to the U.S., Costa Rica spends at least 6% less of their GDP on health. And they ranked one above the U.S. in the WHOs overall performance ratings for 1997.
So yeah critics, prove your point of fighting “a government takeover” of medicine by threatening to move to countries that have systems even more “liberal” than what is being proposed for the U.S. (and systems that have better health outcomes than the U.S.).
