1. Maybe if we abandon capitalism we can attain

the same high standard of living as modern day Cuba.

3. Intractable, hopeless poverty is not too high a price to pay

for losing your liberty and ability to vote to change it.

Plus, they're resigned to it. Russia's been propping up this workers' paradise and bribing compliance of its economic elites for over six decades now. Three generations in, almost no one knows anything else. And of course it was very bad before, or Cuba would never have flopped from the military dictatorship frying pan into the socialist dictatorship fire.

But they do have a national healthcare system which, after six decades, ranks about the 74% percentile, at the top of similarly impoverished Central American nations. They have little problems like the government spying on them through their medical records and doctors, nonconsensual abortions, etc., but a lot of Americans would would feel those were small prices to pay for no medical bills.

Whoops, this one's from the Canadian healthcare hellhole -- before the pandemic.

2. I am assuming he is talking about senior care homes.

That previous governments allowed for profits to operate. The government needs to take them back under their wing and out of the for profit business.

4. WTF is he talking about? Profits for shareholders? The shareholders are all of the Canadian people.

5. I'd take Canada's system, but it does have issues like no prescription drug coverage.

6. One risk pool is a health care system. Multiple risk pools is an investment scheme.

We have enough investment schemes in this country; we need a health care system.

7. Public long term care facilities are the way to go.
