A comment from the Guardian link:
If America can't get it together to look after their sick and ill people ( no NHS )
then what makes anyone think they give a damn about their poor?
Has America a good track record on equality issues? No.
Has America shown economic benefit of its vast wealth to all ? No.
Has America developed good social safety nets for its poor? No.
Why not? Because they just don't want to. It's just the way Americans are.
Anything that sonds like a National health system or decent state benefits is still seen as Communist, or nearly as bad - Socialist.
on American Socialism.
