Finland: Government Collapses Over Universal Health Care Costs, #Bernie2020 Hardest Hit

“Similar problems are bedeviling Sweden and Denmark, two other countries frequently held up as models to follow on health care”

Excerpt:

Finland has long been touted by American socialists as the socialist Nirvana, where everything is free and everyone is happy, happy, happy. Sadly, fiscal reality hit Finland’s government as it collapsed Friday due to the rising costs of its universal health care.

The warning signs were on the wall last spring when Finland, as Leslie noted, ended its experiment with “universal basic income.”

Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who has been hanging his socialist mantle on the “success” of Finland’s socialist structure, may be the hardest hit.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The government of Finland collapsed Friday due to the rising cost of universal health care and the prime minister’s failure to enact reforms to the system.

Prime Minister Juha Sipila and the rest of the cabinet resigned after the governing coalition failed to pass reforms in parliament to the country’s regional government and health services, the Wall Street Journal reports. Finland faces an aging population, with around 26 percent of its citizens expected to be over 65 by the year 2030, an increase of 5 percent from today.

It’s not just Finland experiencing such problems with its socialist policies. Other Nordic countries, also touted by American socialists and communists as the model America should follow, are suffering similar economic burdens directly related to their socialist policies.

*snip*

Just a few days before Finland’s government collapsed over its inability to foot the bill for its expansive socialist experiment, Sanders took to Twitter in an attempt to shame America.

Indeed, Finland has long been a Bernie go-to for the glories of socialism. Last year, he enthusiastically gushed over Finland being the “happiest place in the world” because of all its “free” stuff.

With the collapse of Finland’s government over its inability to financially support its massive socialist agenda, Bernie will undoubtedly do the same thing he always does when socialism (or communism) fails: ignore, obfuscate, and deflect.

After all, for all his big, shiny promises of “free” everything for everyone, he still refuses to address how this largess will be paid for.

Facts will not change the socialist’s narrative. Never has, never will.

The takeaway from this, and the talking points that will be generated from it, are that the elderly pose a significant threat to a socialist society and therefore their presence should be rethought...

Like AOC wants people to stop having babies, because, you know, it's not good for the environment and human kind...

No disrespect to the Finns, but it couldn’t have happened at a better time.

Proves Maggie Thatcher correct. Again.

Maybe Bernie and the She Guevara gang can offer some international assistance by stepping in with their vast experience and show them the right way to do it?

Call it "free" if you will, but the bill comes due sooner or later.

Wow, the medical profession must work for free over there. Damn, the Bangladesh med schools raised their rates gain. I'd also bet the Little House on the Prairie birthing center couldn't do it for 60 bucks.

I can’t wait to hear Bernie tell how they had other problems that lead to this.

Let’s see if the MSM even asks Bernie about this. My guess is that they will not.

Yea, the funny (ironic) thing about Ocasio-Cortez saying that people should stop having children is that it’s the children that have to bear the burden of paying for all the “free” stuff for the generations that came before them. Unless, of course, she believes in the Logan’s Run theory of nobody allowed to live over 30. Or, she expects there will only be immigrants slaving away to try to pay for the onerous taxes in the future. No native born middle-class will survive her purge. Which is pretty much what is happening in Scandinavia right now.
