Title: 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

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.

The Washington Free Beacon continues:

Reuters reports that soaring treatment costs and longer life spans have particularly affected Nordic countries.

“Nordic countries, where comprehensive welfare is the cornerstone of the social model, have been among the most affected,” according to Reuters. “But reform has been controversial and, in Finland, plans to cut costs and boost efficiency have stalled for years.”

Similar problems are bedeviling Sweden and Denmark, two other countries frequently held up as models to follow on health care. Finland’s crisis in particular comes as calls for universal health care have grown louder among Democrats in the United States.

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.


Poster Comment:

Bernie is one of many goofy communists running our Congress. He is the most goofy looking of the bunch.

They didn’t do it right but Comrade Bernie is smarter. You just have to trust him. He will do it right this time if you give him the chance. (2 images)

The problem isn't universal heath care, that is a diversion. It is ever expanding socialism. It isn't wrong to want to control health care costs, any more than it is wrong to want everyone to have access to basic health care.

This is a Republic. It's wrong that the central government sticks their noses into so many areas where it doesn't belong. Washington needs to get out of practically everything they're engaged in.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

And what was the solution the socialist come up with?

Import a bunch of lazy 3rd world people and put them on welfare hoping they would work and pay for aging white people's benefits! Fucking morons!

Why would non-white non-Christian people work to prop up bad policies of socialist? They will make it worse and when whitey dies take over everything!

Solution take the burden off the working people and let them do what they have always done! Work hard on one income and make babies in normal religious family in areas they feel comfortable! Nope, socialist tax working families to death. Force them to work 2 jobs or live in shitty poor area's and be robbed, raped and murdered by 3rd world mindset!

"Socialism corrupts and Democratic Socialism corrupts Absolutely"!

This is a Republic.

What is a Republic? You think using that word justifies everything. The Republic, as you call it, is not a democracy as you imply. In the original Republic the government oversaw everything, there was no individual liberty
