Greetings from germany
I just saw the whole O´Reilly vs John Stewart debate "the rumble 2012".
I got to say: this is how a presidential debate should work but of course without the jokes. They were both in a good shape.
But one thing got me thinking because even john stewart did not react to that statement.
O Reilly said at one point : "look at the uk and other countries where healthcare is managed by the government, they come to the us for operations. It
does not work".
haaa!!! My god. That is soooo false.
He does not seem to know that the uk and germany and other countries in europe have a much better medical system than the us. And that NO ONE goes to
america for operations (despite plastic surgery where the us has some experts) ....How does he even come to that idea.
I normally dont like michael moore, but watch his documentary "Sicko" to understand a little bit about other systems.
Its really shocking to me that in this age people still fall for that "anti socialistic-schock-treatment"..
It seems really to be a killer argument in the us. But its weak ,weak ,weak.
Everyone i know who comes from other countries praises the healthsystem in germany. I was sick very often and had 4 complex operations. I never had to
pay for it and i am damn fine.
Its strange that people in america still think all other systems did not work. In fact in europe it is well known that even CUBA has a better medical
system than You have.
This american ignorance is just childish! ("THE BEESt country in the world blah..the best country in the world in terms of freedom and stability is by
the sweden. But i understand that you would not believe a european guy)
