- Seattle, Washington
Nine years ago, I visited Norway on my 60th birthday.
Oslo struck me as a very clean city that was occupied by healthy-looking people.
Norway has universal health care.
Norwegians have no worries that getting proper medical care will squash them financially. So most people attend to seeking proper care for their health needs. This is unlike the United States, where millions of people put off going to a doctor until their symptoms come from a more advance stage of their illness.
We must wend our way to universal health care.
Hopefully, the Affordable Health Care Act will take us in that direction.
It will be a wonderful day when health insurance companies no longer exist.
