It's not so good in Sweden where waiting times are the longest in Europe, leading some people to (*gasp*) pay for private care. The socialists are upset at this turn of events:
"The new hospital for the children of the upper classes is a mockery of the most fundamental values of the Swedish system,'' said Lars Ohly, leader of the Swedish Left Party. "Care should be given based on needs, not wallets.''In their defense, the Swedes have the second highest life expectancy at birth in the world (after San Marino) but also the highest tax rate in Europe. This is the polar opposite of "Live Free or Die."
