thats the flag of austria, in case you didnt know.
i pointed it out a few times on here and i will do it again. there are a lot of countries with higher taxes than the US (just norway, austria, switzerland as examples). and they all do a pretty good job in providing free education and free health care. of course there is fraud, but whatever, you just have to implement a system that keeps it low. it has more to do with how you execute the plan than with the plan itself.
next, just from an outside perspective, you americans have to look again at the right-left-scale and determine your position. whatever you call "socialism" is still mid-right for european standards. a fucking health care plan isnt the end of the world. all of our countries have too much debt to care for such a minor point in the budget.
in all seriousness, i read that 3 times, 1st time i thought what the fuck is he on about, read it again and thought, this fuckbag has to be kidding, read it once more and decided calling you a fuckbag wasnt good enough - sick-as-aids
