I want you to watch this video of how an American girl talks about how life changes knowing that you don’t have to worry about being able to pay for your health care and if you’re sick you can go to the doctor without ruining yourself since you’ve lived in Spain. pic.twitter.com/wSPJkole8E

Users have been quick to react. Some, for value the public health system in Spain. Others, to criticize Ayuso’s sanitary abandonment and his vassals in the Communities where they govern. And, in the middle, there are those who have taken the opportunity to launch subtle darts against USA.
This is a Spain brand. This should be a source of pride. But they are stealing it from us while we applaud. https://t.co/1KD4aJC5MZ

The American system is incredible. The American dream is more false than a 600 bill. And many continue to idolize it. Sure, because they can afford it.

It’s not just sanitation. Molts treballadors al·lucinen amb els drets laborals a Europa. Of fet, they per llei have neither paid vacations nor maternity leave. Face tindrem a hello d’americans come to Europe.

People who vote for parties that privatize public health are not aware of how great it is to have a health system like ours. https://t.co/SD0cxldDEN

This girl’s mistake is thinking that Health is free. No, we all pay for it under a philosophy of social solidarity and co-responsibility. Remember: the value of a public system is NOT what it costs, but what it would cost us all NOT to have it.

Undoubtedly, a video at least interesting to appease all those who promote the privatization of health services and who fantasize about the American dream. We do not know what we have until we lose it.
