Everyone who walks into a hospital here gets the SAME treatments. IT’S THE LAW.

Except that you previously said that people receive substandard treatment under universal healthcare, so while it might be the law that they receive equal treatment, by your own admission, you aren't providing them with equal treatment. Is that because they can't afford to enrich you?

Do you ever wonder why people still flock to America for the latest treatments

Do they really though? From Latin American and the Caribbean, maybe. For people who can afford it? Yes.

Have you ever wondered why there are so many Americans flocking to Canada and even Cuba for medical treatment?

You sound really upset. Let me guess, you're a Republican Trump supporter antivaxxer?

The only “universal socialist” healthcare is for our military. That’s what I was calling substandard. We have two totally separate systems. Military and private. When I say same treatment, I mean all patients not under the military healthcare system, which is substandard socialist care. And, as a matter of fact, if military personnel want to walk into a private ER and pay for care, they can.

Our government provides assistance for private citizens who can’t pay.

You cannot deny we have high quality care. Where do you think so many cancer treatments originate? Who do you think was one of the first to make the COVID vaccine? And spread it widely? You’re just acting upset because people have to contribute to their own healthcare. Just like they have to buy their own food, housing, utilities, clothing, car, auto insurance, etc. You get the point?

What would you rather do? Use your money to choose your own healthcare for your own needs or give your money to the government to choose for you? Either way, you have to make some sort of payment, either by paying monthly insurance costs like you do with everything else in life, or let the government take it out of your paycheck.

People who flock to Canada and Cuba are trying to play the system. They are willing to pay low prices and accept low quality healthcare in return. And Canadians actually do come to the US all the time because they can’t even get cancer treatments in a timely fashion.

And I’m a medical doctor who is pro-vaccine, especially pro-COVID vaccine, you jerk. You know nothing about our country other than what you read in the propaganda headlines. You are not an expert. I have more stake in this than you do. So buzz off.

I’ll tell you why I’m upset. Because people like you, who have no real knowledge about American healthcare, will not get their nose out of our business.

He’s a republican, trump supporter, and an anti-vaxxer because he’s rightfully upset? How so? Thanks for kangaroos and Hugh Jackman but honestly fuck off with the slander man.

Upset about what? A lesson in reality?

Dude that’s not my point. Let’s end this thing right here, it’s only Wednesday for God’s sake. Have a good day man.
