Oh we hope so.
Sometimes reality shines through even in Cuba.
One of the rules in my family growing up was “never go to a European hospital if it could be avoided.” Not that it mattered much because after the earliest part of my life we never went back to Europe.
No doubt things are better now but my parents had some interesting experiences (to say the least) with the British and Italian health care systems.
This is I guess looking at very broad and large categories. I didn’t see lobbyist/crony on the list and they on average probably do better than doctors. At least in DC.
In fairness I don’t think the Finns would use the term “Utopia.” It’s mostly Americans who are enamored with the “Nordic model” who do that.
And really we should give the Finns a break too. Right now it’s basically perpetual night in much of the country.
Looks like they recovered most of it. (Or so we are told.) But multiply this across the 50 states.
Obamacare is a dysfunction generating machine. On nearly every level the thing is screwed up. But that is the inherent nature of large government programs.
This is Obama’s legacy? Way to go Mr. President. Be sure to thank the Pharma and health insurance company lobbyists on your way out of the White House. I’m sure they’ll be thanking you.
This will never happen because Congress has GOOD healthcare. They excluded themselves from Obamacare. Do you think they would ever throw themselves into the Veterans Affairs system? Not – a – chance. But it’s good to have them on the record as being hypocrites.
The VA system is a disaster. It does not serve our veterans as it should. Indeed as has been covered many times by many outlets hundreds of thousands of vets have died just waiting for treatment.

In places for instance where car thefts are off the charts car insurance premiums are sharply higher. Why? Because the premium from the policies issued, taking into account the investment return possible from insurance reserves,
