Sat here in my lovely cosy country with a National Health Service (which is far from perfect, but hey) and through the marvel of the internets I've been getting little snippets of what Obama seems to be doing with healthcare in the US, at least enough to know it's got Faux news and certain youtubers hyped up.
I am tempted to make a video on the subject but will admit I am in a state of bewildered ignorance, and don't want to speak on subjects I have no understanding of.
I was just wondering what the system is currently in the US, what Obama is proposing, what people's opinions are, the arguments for and against what Obama is doing, and what the best third option is (because there is always one.)
Am I right in thinking that there is some remnant despise for the word "socialist" in America?
And why is America ranked 37 in the world for Healthcare, when several countries with some sort of universal healthcare are ranked higher?
(UK is 18th)http://www.photius.com/rankings/healthranks.html
(No idea how old this is, or whether the fact that healthcare is universal bumps it up the rankings.)
