Finnish Government Collapses Due to Rising Cost of Universal Health Care
Free Beacon


quote:

The government of Finland collapsed Friday due to the rising cost of universal health care and the prime minister's failure to enact reforms to the system. Prime Minister Juha Sipila and the rest of the cabinet resigned after the governing coalition failed to pass reforms in parliament to the country's regional government and health services, the Wall Street Journal reports. Finland faces an aging population, with around 26 percent of its citizens expected to be over 65 by the year 2030, an increase of 5 percent from today. Sipila's reforms "intended to remove power from the 295 municipalities that currently oversee health and social care, and place responsibility within a leaner, more efficient system of 18 elected regional authorities," according to the Journal. The prime minister also wanted patients to be able to choose from a range of public and private providers. Sipila said "there's no other way for Finland to succeed" besides these reforms, which could have led to $3.4 billion in savings for the government.


But by all means, let's try it here!!

Moron liberals point to these places like idiots because they think if Socialist stupidity doesn't IMMEDIATELY collapse, it proves it is successful

That's why those idiots thought the USSR was succeeding, Venezuela.....Cuba.....

The stupid fricks have no concept of WHY socialism is ALWAYS doomed

Please let the word spread to the increasingly entitled US voting public. These 90 day wonders in Congress are getting a free ride on their free shite for everybody campaigns.

Similar problems are bedeviling Sweden and Denmark, two other countries frequently held up as models to follow on health care. Finland's crisis in particular comes as calls for universal health care have grown louder among Democrats in the United States.

Socialism has a 100% failure rate, we should definitely give it a shot!

Large amounts of social welfare spending combined with decreasing birth rates that inevitably happen in wealthy countries? That sounds like a recipe for success if I've ever heard one.

They weren't doing it right. If you look at the Nordic countries... wait.

I remain convinced that the USA Ship of State will chart a course right into the rocks of Socialism.

Too bad, really.

This won't deter the left wing none. They want our current government to collapse so they can implement their utopian socialist totalitarian state.

Oh we will. And it will probably get here before we know it.

And the results will probably be worse here

Same thing Obama care was designed to do.

Destroy a nations economy from within, starting with the middle class.

Yes.
He took debt that took 230+ years to accumulate and doubled it in 8 years. Why do you suppose he did that??

Obama is, and has always been, a slimy, anti American communist.

How does Finland have an aging population? It’s brutally cold and boring with a bunch of hot Scandinavian women.

There’s nothing to do but drink vodka and frick

From the words of avowed Commie Van Jones, "Top Down, Bottom Up, Inside Out."

Squash the Middle Class to bring about the Revolution.
Look it up. He said those exact words in how to do it.

Since the existence of a middle class, certain members of the upper class have used lower class envy to work against the middle to the financial advantage of themselves while throwing a bone to the proles.

re: Finnish Government Collapses Due to Rising Cost of Universal Health Care
Go look at health care cost GROWTH rates in European nations and compare them to America

We are actually in middle of pack in that regard

There is zero evidence single payer systems are good at controlling cost growth

Look at Medicare...cost growth vastly exceeds private cost growth
