healthcare isn't so free in Australia, either

Welcome!

"Department of Human Services data obtained by News Limited show 14,000 Australians applied to access superannuation savings to pay for medical costs and 8000 people were given access to $79 million in payouts.
Another 1700 people with a terminal illness claimed a further $19 million in early superannuation payouts and $12 million was paid to allow over 1000 people with a disability to modify their homes or vehicles.
The growing call on superannuation savings to pay medical bills has laid bare a growing health funding crisis in Australia."

This is why a lot of people there also shell out for private health insurance. Redistribution of wealth is no one's friend.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
