I was reading my history book (because I’m a nerd and school is cancelled, shhh) and I read something…
Traduction : “Back then, ill people had to pay for consultations with a doctor, medical exams, or even hospitalisation. Whether it was to give birth or have surgery, services were billed. Less than half of the population had private insurance and health care was expensive. Some people even hesitated to get treatment.
This is about 1960. SIXTY YEARS AGO.
Why does it sound like the American Health care system today? This is in the book to show how bad it was back in the days and how much we’ve improved. How is it that Americans don’t see the problem with their health care system when it is the same as the one we had in 1960. The one we criticized and called out for it’s unfairness? The one we decided to change because it wasn’t good enough for us BACK IN 1960??
Anyways I know this is a stupidly passionate rant but this kind of thing pisses me off.
