It is hard for those without power or money to organize, especially when the nation is turned against them and they are constantly shown in the news and in politics as "leeches" and "lazy".
Which country is "this country"? I'm not from the US.
But socialized healtchare -is- the kindness of the people, that's my entire point. Equal contribution, equal chances. Those are the ideals.
Ofcourse, an ineffective government will always waste money. I think there are many hospitals in the US that function on donation, no?
Though that would mean that treatment is uneven. If one region has more people that can donate more money, their hospital will work better than the region that has less people with lower income. That's why socialized healthcare tries to distribute the money evenly. That's done with different effectiveness ofcourse.
The idea is that the government should be the people. With Socialisticly inspired politics (not real socialism) you have a lot of that.
