    How many Americans who support socialized or Universal healthcare do YOU encounter who are actually familiar with how they work and their real world results abroad? Instead of the fairy-tale version that John Oliver and others try to sell them?

    Australia here, in the main working well for us to the point I have the highest level of private insurance provided by my employer and I rarely even use it the public system it's that good.

    You know how long I waited for my last MRI. 5 fucking minutes. I watched all of your so-called rebuttal, and to call it lightweight would be doing it a massive favor,

    I live in Canada and have seen this in action. It sucks and US MSM has no idea how horrible it is.

    To everyone here, you should look into reading the research yourself rather than listening to the cherry picked talking points a dude on YouTube you really want to trust.

    I love how he sites Singapore as being nationalised healthcare…. It's nationalised for sure, in the fact that the government owns all the hospitals and the government doesn't allow you to speak the fuck up or they'll clamp down on you… but the conservatives love Singapore though! If you want a free market system you should look at Denmark, that's probably the solution that US conservatives should look to.

    You don’t understand anything about John Oliver’s arguments. You completely ignore all of the downsides of our current systems and amplify the downsides of universal healthcare. Stop spreading this lie that everything here is peachy keen and everyone’s happy. This is disgusting.

    From an European, the argument we have against private health care is "do you want a system like the US?"
    Enough said.

    I have friends from different countries (mainly EU) that think M4A is great and you are wrong here are their reasons:

    1. In Canada (and other countries with socialized healthcare) not all hospitals have a long wait time, and at least they don't turn you down when you have no way to pay for treatment.

    2. If you lose your job you still keep your insurance, in fact many people have the same insurance for life.

    3. paying thousands in dollars on hospital bills is worse than paying extra in taxes.

    –I'd also like to clarify that there are different types of socialized healthcare, such as:

    single payer like Canada – @t
    socialized medicine like the UK – @t
    Switzerland has private healthcare that is heavily regulated by the government like a more intense version of ObamaCare – @t

    America pays more in healthcare than people in Germany, France, Sweden, Spain, Italy etc. Even thought they cover everybody and have overall better health statistics.
    -America pays around 10,000 dollars per year on healthcare, all other countries with universal healthcare are spending around 5,000 dollars

    if you had an appendix surgery in the U.S it would cost you around 10,000 dollars in the UK it's 5,000,

    if you had an MRI in the U.S it would cost 1,200 dollars in Switzerland it's less than 600.

    22,000 Americans die per year due to treatable diseases because they couldn't afford to get help.

    and 2 out of 3 personal bankruptcies are due to medical bills this doesn't happen in countries with universal healthcare.

    BUT completely changing the healthcare system that barely changed since 50 years ago is going to be disruptive, people who like their private insurance might be force to give it up. It also means the government has a much bigger role in deciding who gets covered and what happens

    Crowder you didn’t debunk SHIT lmao going to the “free shit for everybody” rebuttal means you don’t have an argument because people DO pay for it with this concept called TAXES. Look it up crowder! 🤣

    Question: If John Oliver is so against the healthcare system and other capitalist/free market things here in the US. Why is now here? Why doesn't he just move back to the UK? Why leave a place only to try and change the new place like the junk you left?

    The problem with Crowder dude is his idea of winning an argument is just shouting in a whining high pitched voice. I realise that both John Oliver and Crowder have views on opposite sides of the spectrum. But one talks in a reasoned way and offers positives and negatives to his own point of view. The other just shrieks out smart ass remarks. I know who I'd rather listen too.

    I see everyone in the comments disagreeing and all of this and arguing well how about this both are flawed but we all know that the US will never be able to pay for free medical for all unless we are all taxed by 80% and that’s bernies plan

    That stat about the UK stents is a load of crap. My Dad had a heart attack and had a stent put in straight away on the NHS. They have since checked his other 3 valves in his heart and he probably needs two other stents or a by pass on them at some point. However it's not an issue at the moment and with Covid, they have said that he'll need to wait. The reason for waiting lists is to do with priority. Do you really think that someone is going to wait 55 days for a stent while they are having a heart attack? Also, affluent and non affluent areas? NHS? It's to do with population, not how rich an area is. Its a socialist idea so has nothing to do with who has money and who doesn't. The NHS ins't perfect, but I would prefer not to worry about being charged for things like calling out an Ambulance etc.

    Does it not show how badly the system letting people down that a charity that offered free healthcare to 3rd world countries has to offer the same service to people in the USA because they can't access healthcare? Jesus Christ that fact alone should horrify anybody that people are relying on the same charity that 3rd world starving children rely on to try survive. The system needs fixing

    Sigh, again nobody is arguing that single payer is perfect.

    But man, it's 10 times better than what the US had before Obamacare.

    And about 8 times better than Obamacare.

    Hey Crowder, 10's of thousands of people die (DIE!) Every year because they don't have healthcare insurance. A lot of these are unable to get it. Effectively a death sentence.

    There are tonnes of other reasons why the system you advocate for is worse…. But just let that sink in

    Then feel free to retort pal

    I'm a Brit and I wholeheartedly agree with everything you say. We are also taught to respect the NHS etc and anyone that says otherwise is considered disrespectful. I would love to experience US healthcare

    Bernie also forgets to mention that the reason these country's can "afford' universal healthcare is because their defense budget is practically zero because big brother american capitalism spends 600 plus billion on defense, that coincidentally ONLY Americans pay for!
