Taiwan is surrounded by ocean, cheaper than pitchforks and full of sharks. 'Nuff said.

Taiwan doesn't have medical malpractice lawsuits. They also ration healthcare. Seems like a bad place to be a doctor.

"Taiwanese hospitals and clinics are understaffed compared to the rest of the world: There are about 1.7 doctors in Taiwan for every 1,000 patients, which is well below the average of 3.3 in other developed countries. There are especially shortages of specialists in less urbanized parts of the country."

Bernie means medicaid for all, not medicare. Seniors pay for medicare their entire lives, and continue to pay as seniors. We should at least use proper terms.

"Compared to the rest of the developed world, America spends more money on health care and produces worse outcomes. By one advanced metric — mortality for causes that should be avoidable with accessible, high-quality health care — the United States ranked last among the G7 countries in 2016. America’s infant mortality rate is almost double that of some of its peers. "

This is wrong, and constantly repeated.

Our infant mortality issues, and pretty much every other metric they use are direct functions of poor individual choices. In fact, the infant mortality is happening amongst medicaid recipients who can see the doctor whenever they want. 1)often they just dont cause they lack any responsibility whatsoever. 2)often they are on drugs which skyrockets the odds of infant mortality, or 3) often they live on doritos and soda so their babies are malnourished in the womb.

Almost exactly like our gun murder rate issues, this problem can be almost entirely pinpointed in one, desperately broken cultural community. Meanwhile, we compare ourselves to countries that have almost no black people. Well, compare our white infant mortality, etc... to europe, and guess what you find? Almost identical stats. Muh racism, I know.

Also, notice this article nor any other mentioning the incorrect "medicare for all" label mentions the fact that our system ranks #1 in accessibility, and #1 in 5 year rate of cancer survival. Theres a reason why rich foreigners come here for cancer treatment.

I am for a free watered down medicaid for all. These guys go to emergency anyways and that money can be moved to this scenario. Only generic or free medicines. RN pr PA vet the patient. No or low quality hospital stay.

We should also allow people to buy into a tiered medicare based on age. High risk population can buy into this. Rest is all private.



Add into that available Catastrophic policies and preventative medicine.

I'm also guessing that Taiwan doesn't have the obesity levels that the US has....

Yep, no huge contingent using medical services far beyond their percentage of the population.

Indian version of "medicare for all" - doctor visits, availability of medicine, hospital hygiene etc ALL are optional to a level a panhandlers hesitate to enter. Now corrupt politicians are lurking at private hospitals.

I would also bet that a scum bag doctor that would randomly bill a patient that he never saw or even knows, would be grounds for beheading in Taiwan.
Here it's so common it's expected and accounts for 60% of every medical bill.

Feel free to move to Taiwan.

Scum Republicans run their mouths about places they don't live & can't pay cash ,in advance, for their families healthcare. What a bunch of failures.
