What’s the difference between Switzerland and Minnesota?
- The Swiss don’t have a football team – but if they did, they’d be better than the Vikings
- The Swiss are too smart to socialize their healthcare system:
And it wasn’t even close: 62 percent, mostly German, voted to tube the proposal to socialize Switzerland’s healthcare system.
Hey, speaking of Minnesota – does any of this sound familiar?
“Our health system is among the top performers in the world. Competition between health insurers and freedom of choice for clients play a major role in this,” it added.
Going public would have been a major shift for a country whose health system is often hailed abroad as a paragon of efficiency, but is a growing source of frustration at home because of soaring costs…
And how are the costs soaring?
…”Over the past 20 years in Switzerland, health costs have grown 80 percent and insurance premiums 125 percent,” ophthalmologist Michel Matter told AFP.
That’s bad. Nothing like the US healthcare system, between the past ten years and Obamacare, but it’s certainly a problem.
Still – what do the Swiss know that we – and by “we” I mean “a plurality of our Democrat neighbors” – don’t?
