That's propaganda your system feeds you to keep you angry at the wrong people. In places like Australia they have both free healthcare and generous welfare schemes that you don't get kicked off of after 6 weeks or whatever it is in the US. And their minimum wage is like $17/hr. And 4 weeks off a year is standard.

The reason you guys are fucked is that you have the working poor: people getting paid so little that they are still below the poverty line despite working 40 hour weeks. People getting paid nothing in general while multinationals, and their upper echelon of staff, make more money than any one person could ever need.

On top of that the free market, which is meant to drive competition and give you guys reasonably priced healthcare, was never free at all but rather full of corruption and exploitation. So they all fuck you in the ass and there are no good options.

The most amazing part about the system is its propaganda. In order to ensure that average citizens don't do anything to stop the rich few who routinely take advantage of them, a rhetoric has been developed about these lazy welfare people sucking away all the money, or the immigrants coming over to terk err jerbs, or that it's the evil socialists who want to ruin the beautiful free market health care system that the US has even though it doesn't work at all and the socialised health care systems in every other fucking wealthy country in the world works amazingly.

That's some North Korea-level propaganda shit right there.

Not even a cast? I thought it took 6 weeks for bone breaks to heal.
