  •  Odd. I have a huge extended family in Germany (1+ / 0-)

    (I was born in Germany outside Hanover), and no one in the family has ever complained about the German healthcare system.  As a matter of fact, I have an 80-year-old Aunt who has been a paraplegic since she was 24, and she has nothing but praise for the German healthcare system.  The fact that has been paralyzed from the waist down for 55 years and is still alive is a testament to her constitution and the care she receives.  My uncle's wife, just under 70 years old, has had a host of ailments for the past 20 years and she, too, has nothing but praise for the German healthcare system.  I could go on, but I won't bore everyone.  

    If Green Sauce doesn't like the German healthcare system he should come try ours.  He thinks his care is expensive?  He should compare his cost with ours.  He'd be running home quicker than he could say "Ich hatte genug".

    •  this isn't about "liking". (0+ / 0-)

      I would be even worse off in the US.

      But you should keep a realistic view; even if it's only to be believable.

      Not everybody is equally well supplied in the health care system in Germany.
