    crowdfunding and govenment-funded healthcare is the same thing

    they're both funded collectively by the public so whether the actual quality of the final product is good or not doesn't matter because it's driven by public interest rather then actual consumer demand

    i've seen alot of awful stuff on crowdfunding sites and i'm sure this is bound to happen to crowdfunded healthcare

    compare that to privatized healthcare which is purely demand-driven and would fail miserably if the quality is bad

    And THIS is coming from Switzerland? That's s'posed to be the Best FREE Health Care System in the whole wide world!?!?!?

  3. yes pineapple pizza

    Wait, why do we have to pay for compulsory healthcare in switzerland if they don't help when we really need it. Stupid system. We never benefit
