DB2: "[Swedish] private companies also vie with each other to provide state-funded health services and care for the elderly."Sweden pays 97% of its citizens' health care costs through taxes, mostly local county taxes. This amounts to about 9% of GDP. Their health system is highly decentralized, and not anything like the monolithic state apparatus that American conservatives imagine it to be. Real living socialism is shockingly different from the dystopia that is regularly excoriated in the wing nut blogosphere.Having worked in Sweden, I can say that Swedes view the American health care system as a form of lunacy.Lorenhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthcare_in_Sweden
