This article made my jaw hit the floor. I have been a big proponent of a united health care system since I saw Michael Moore's movie ( the title of the movie escapes me at this point in time). A lot of people have heard my desire for this type of health care system and all they say to me is that I haven't done all my research and I don't know everything that is going to change. Despite what they think, I did do my research. MONTHS AGO! I know that taxes are going to increase, but I don't think that matters to me. I'd rather a certain percent come directly out of my paycheck for my health then me having to pay a fucking FORTUNE just to ensure that I'm healthy when I leave the hospital. Anyways, this post is not about my beliefs. I just wanted to point out the differences in the American stories versus the European stories. The European stories just sound SO MUCH BETTER TO ME. Honest to God, the stories I've heard of the health care in Europe have convinced me ALONE to move there. I definitely want to move there. I will be conducting my own research and stuff on what it would be like to live there and how to go about doing so.
