60% for everyone! But you get free healthcare. I think I'll choose the U.S. and buy my healthcare.


If you could get it. Remember how few Americans had health insurance prior to Obamacare.  It was just like price controls in the old Soviet Union.  Oddly the Swedes love their society.  Not quite the same for most Americans.

Again  the comparison of any of those countries with the US is not only silly but very inefficient and quite ridiculous.

Is just like comparing China and Russia.

I cannot understand as to why we need to compare, copy anyone, we have our own culture, history language and racial composition than any of those countries   has.

We have a unique mixture of all of those things. We need to find the things that work for us. and not try to copy others.

I know the Nordic countries have called out Bernie Sanders, you guys on the left may want to straighten him out.

 

 

 

 

"The former prime minister of Sweden, a country Sen. Bernie Sanders has called on the U.S. to emulate, shared a video of the independent Vermont senator praising some public programs from the Soviet Union."

 

"In a snarky tweet, Carl Bildt, who served as prime minister from 1991 to 1994, said it was nice of Sanders to celebrate the Soviet programs shortly before the entire Soviet Union collapsed in 1991."

We on the left have been trying to tell those on the Right that what they continue to label as "Socialist" really is not. Sweden is not a Socialist country. They just use a more efficient way of providing and financing their social services.  In the free market of ideas, they are winning and the American system of providing and financing social services is proving to be inefficient and overly expensive.

 

 

The right wingers apparently are not sufficiently schooled to comprehend the nuisance of words.

Sweden has not responded. to this erroneous reference on being a socialist country..

......Denmark has.   

 

After seeing his country held up as an example in the US presidential debate, Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen used an address at Harvard to explain DENMARK IS NOT SOCIALIST---have thriving capitalism--and social benefits like any developed country.

To compare the government and the culture of Sweden with the US is a  pretty big mistake.

First of all, just by the difference in population  the post needs to understand that those countries have to function differently.

What would work in Sweden would never work in the US> there is a treasonous difference in culture, idiosyncrasy, language, religions, racial composition, history and many other things that would make any comparison impossible.

Socialism will work in certain matters and not in others just like capitalism  To think that you can have one or the other is not really knowing either.

So I would suggest that the poster takes into consideration all the differences that exist, before making any comparison.

ChasKy53:  When will so called conservatives stop inaccurately and erroneously labeling other countries as "Socialist" when they are not?

 

 

They can't be bothered with those pesky little details.
