Mitt Romney praises other nations for their socialized medicine
"When our health care costs are completely out of control. Do you realize what health care spending is as a percentage of the GDP in Israel? 8 percent. You spend 8 percent of GDP on health care. And you’re a pretty healthy nation”

If only Romney’s appreciation of Israel’s success did not fly smack in the face of his constant, ideologically based rhetoric guaranteed to insure that only the wealthiest Americans get a taste of the healthcare Israelis receive as their birthright.

Or does the Governor simply not understand that Israel’s healthcare success story—including their ability to control costs— is the direct result of the nation’s socialized healthcare system that has existed since the country’s founding in 1948 and institutionalized by law in 1995?

Today, the nation of Israel requires that every Israeli belong to one of four health maintenance organizations (that’s right…mandated participation)—each operating as a non-profit and each funded by the Israeli government via a progressive tax that every citizen is obligated to pay based on their earnings.

Wait, socialized medicine is evil. Oh wait I need to pander to a socialized medicine country... OK socialism is cool with me.

This is kinda funny, because without a constant stream of welfare checks from America, Israel wouldn't even exist, let alone have a socialized medicine program that the Israeli people are going broke trying to pay for.

Re: Mitt Romney praises other nations for their socialized medicine
As an outsider looking in, as far as I am aware, taking out your insurance contributions you guys still pay more per person for that healthcare than the NHS does..

How on earth this has happened boggles the mind, and why on earth you should be expected to pay more for Obamas healthcare reforms is beyond me.. no wonder you guys are angry and no wonder this debate is such a mess.

While I think Mitt the Twit earned his title in the UK, he was still right with his questions about the Olympics, just not when he was meant to be on a charm offensive, and he is right about the other nations socialised medicine, it is more cost effective for the tax payer..

Why should you guys pay more for a sub standard service when it should be the best in the world and give you pride not cause you the abuse it does..

Well that is my tuppence.. Mitt is still a twit, but he seems to be right, and for that I have some respect for him..

I hope the American people get the health service they not only deserve, but they get at least what they pay for..

"Going broke trying to pay for"??

Idiot, a socialized system that includes everybody brings costs down and is far more efficient. Romney praised Israel for spending 8% of GDP on healthcare while we spend 18% (and millions die or are financially ruined).

Funny if you listened to Rush Limbaugh yesterday like I did.
When he started off his show and you could tell something was bothering him as he had a fake giddiness and added that he had a lot to cover - and the news was in favor of his choice fro president, Romney.

He went on by attempting to use the classic technique of reverse psychology by suggesting that the entire media world is making up a story about Romney by saying he embarrassed himself thoroughly on his trip abroad. LOL

Rush is indeed very entertaining to listen too!

Quite a comparison. It's a bit like comparing a diamond to a turd – yes, they're both carbon based but there are fundamental differences like the size and population of the US to name just two. You can polish that turd to a high gloss but it will remain a turd.

Yes, but with the difference that Spain's civilians confront corruption without fear, are AWARE of the manipulations, get very angry and continously take to the streets to express their anger. Spain has only been a democracy since 1976, theyve been thru a hell of a lot changes, they were the first western world country that started the "indignados" movement, on manistream national TV they speak openly and aggressively about political -fincial-or whatever corruption. I do not know whether or not in the end they will be crushed or whether they will make real positive changes, but at least they stand up and fight.

It's not so simple, you maroon.


American aid to Israel comes at a heavy price with onerous strings attached. Seventy-five percent of all monies must be spent in the US thus making it a make-work program for America’s defense industry. These conditions have cost Israel 100,000 manufacturing jobs and Israel has been prevented from using its technology for the development of its own economy.

The ending of American aid would solve Israel’s unemployment crisis and free Israel to reap a tremendous profit in arms sales that would more than offset any benefits of American largesse. Currently, Israel upgrades virtually all of the military equipment that it receives from the US and yet the American companies own the technology and are the only ones able to profit.

Re: Mitt Romney praises other nations for their socialized medicine
The Israeli government is embarrassed to tell the US administration what needs to be said: Please, take back your loan guarantees. In the coming decade we probably will not need them, while you may very well need them. The Administration economists I met know this well.

People who still speak about “US economic pressure on Israel via loan guarantees” are completely disconnected from reality. Israel is now helping the US pay its deficits, and not the other way around. This is why we were laughing, the American economists and myself, when the issue of loan guarantees came up in our conversation. I was laughing happily; they were laughing somewhat sadly.3 Recommend
