Like a Viking!

Back in 'Aught 12, we noted that the Norwegian national health care scheme was starting to buckle:

"[T]he E.R. is simply not open at this hour ... What? There’s not always a doctor at the E.R.?"

That would be a 'no.'

And even that model of competence Sweden had begun feeling the pain:

"Swedes also complain about not being able to see their own regular general practitioner"

Life under government-run health "care."

But things are changing; co-blogger Mike alerts us to the newest developments:

"It’s intriguing that while socialists in America would rush to nationalize the health care system, Norwegians, Swedes, and Danes are all gradually increasing their use of private health insurance."

Wait, what?

How could this be?

Well, the numbers tell a very interesting tale:

"Between 2006 and 2016, the portion of the population covered by private insurance increased by 4% in Sweden, 7% in Norway, and 22% in Denmark."

Remember that when Medicaid4All proponents here tout the wonders of government-run health "care."
