    Remember when Bernie said Finland"s socialism was a success

    Finland: Government Collapses Over Universal Health Care Costs






    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.

    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.


    "Similar problems are bedeviling Sweden and Denmark, two other countries frequently held up as models to follow on health care"

                They say Bernie is Jewish but I don't buy it.

                My Jewish parents taught me never buy anything on credit except the house you live in, they taught me if you want something..work for it, save your money and you'll be more appreciative of it when you can buy it, never accept a handout if you are healthy enough to work for it on your own, two jobs are better than one, "God helps those that help themselves" and my favorite; take care of your family.

                A little known fact is that Bernie had a baby with a baby momma when he was young and he did not give the baby money a penny for that kid.
                In fact Bernie didn't have a job when that kid was young, he was a "socialist activist" which translates to housing assistance and food stamps.

                That piece of shit should not visit a temple, the lightning strike from heaven will be deadly.

                      Keep in mind Finland ( and most of the nordic country’s) have major expenses like defense budget funded by the US.

                      Its like saying imagine how better off we would all he if our rich uncle paid our mortgage.

                            Why don't any of our failed politicians ever resign?

                              If they resign, they won't have access to all the free money they keep stealing from us!
