yeah... most people are very fearful... and not flexible at all.
the big problem is most Americans don't want a socialised healthcare system cause they think its bad, when its the actual opposite. Brainwashed since the 50's.
i really don't know why people think free health care for everyone is bad.
denying someone access to medical aid in any form whatsoever is one of the most evil things one can do... almost like raping little children or something.
Well, it's not exactly free, we're paying for it through taxes, but I'd rather do that than bail out bankers and go to wars in far away countries.
Ironically they only call it "socialized" health care in the US when it's known as universal
health care everywhere it's implemented.
Quote:The term ["socialized medicine"] was popularized by the public relations firm Whitaker and Baxter working for the American Medical Association in 1947 to disparage President Truman's proposal for a national health care system. It was a label, at the dawn of the cold war, meant to suggest that anybody advocating universal access to health care must be a communist. And the phrase has retained its political power for six decades.
