My question relates to a simple fact, that to many Europeans it seems that every time a President of the USA is committed to create a real Public Health service, the people seem to act against their efforts.
There are no street movements to support his efforts and also the people seem to be averse to such kind of project.
In Europe (and in Canada too) there are Public Health services that work very well. In Italy (my country) where things are often disorganized in many sectors, the Public Health system works so well that in many branches of medicine some of the world's most important centers of excellence are Italian public hospitals.
In USA, if you don't have insurance (and consequently a job) or you are retired and you get a cancer or some other severe disease, you have few chances to survive because care and diagnostic tests are very expensive, and few people can afford them without insurance.
Also I know that insurance contracts may be interrupted by the companies that realize that you have become a problem for them and there are no laws that protect the people against such kind of behaviors.
Is this true?
