OK, but the context of my discussion was with a native European. No other country in the world has a culture like the U.S. Probably has something to do with never being ruled. (ya think?)
My point was that a health system in line with the culture of the country is going to most easily be backed by its citizens. Even thought the U.S. has been trending towards a socialist system, it runs counter to the inherent culture of the nation. That is why it has had a cool reception.
