Surprised to see Australia at #2 - but not at all surprised to see the USA dead last.

Actually Freya i would rate ours in Australia at # 1
i have been chronically unwell for 11 years & i have received ALL top class medical treatment AND surgeries for FREE! The only thing i pay for is a minimal fee of $6 for medications.

Doesn't surprise me we are dead last.....I'm tired of going to the funerals of those without medical care. It's no joke. Yes, defend what you have Animae. I wouldn't wish our system on my worst enemy.

And I ask, those who come across this thread, to copy and paste this link below into your browser. It is written by a woman name Donna Smith who testified at the US House Judiciary Committee. I think those in DC should pull this out and read it. I know it's 5 pages long, but it is worth reading, and her story is not unique, believe me.

💙💜Noted...We are very lucky here in Australia. You can be admitted to a public hospital and it costs zero and the treatment is very good.

💙💜Thank you...Johan💙💜
