As US said there's no such thing as FREE healthcare. The nation's finances are up the river without a paddle and one of the major contributors is that Government spending is out of control. Do you have any idea how much we spend annually on health and welfare? Do you know what proportion of Government spending this represents? Check it out some time. It might just open your eyes to the myth of FREE healthcare!
Sadly the situation can only get worse because more people are living to older ages and the population of people in work by comparison is shrinking each year. Which means that the few in work are having to support an ever increasing elderly population. The Government's spending is already significantly above tax receipts and each month they are having to borrow more and more to make ends meet. Look at the level of our national debt and you'll see that we are not only bankrupt (we are where Japan was 20 years ago and they've still not recovered!) but very soon we will not be able to service the interest costs on that debt!
