If I had to list the top 10 reasons I love living in Australia I'd guess that our Medicare system (where every Australian citizen has access to the medical treatment and pharmaceuticals they require, either free or at mandated low costs) would be top 3.

I personally pay for our families private cover as well, but that's because I am fortunate enough to be able to afford it and, having been heavily involved with the medical system these past few years, I like our family having choice over our treatments and Doctors etc.

But yeah, knowing that my family, my kids and myself will never have to face crippling medical debt, and knowing that medical assistance is there for us all if we need it, that's a huge plus.

I honestly don't understand the thought process behind thinking socialised medicine is a bad thing.

Yeah I think if this had happened back in October we'd be looking at candidate Bernie Sanders right now.

While a global pandemic rages on, Trump administration officials asked the Supreme Court to strike down the Affordable Care Act, which has expanded healthcare coverage for millions of Americans
