Storyboard Description

Socialized healthcare has many hidden drawbacks.

Storyboard Text

  • Free Healthcare
  • Really? That sounds wonderful.
  • They say it's free! You wouldn't have to work that awful job anymore.
  • Shortage
  • I'm sorry. There's no room.
  • Waiting
  • We'll have to put you on the waiting list.
  • But I'm sick!
  • Free healthcare sounds appealing and definitely has a couple of advantages, but the disadvantages far outweigh the advantages.
  • Control
  • We think it's best if your son doesn't get treatment.
  • To cut costs so that the country can afford to pay the price of free healthcare, there becomes a shortage of supplies, including hospital beds.
  • Coverage
  • This treatment wasn't covered by your universal healthcare plan. You'll have to pay out-of-pocket. 
  • On socialized healthcare, supplies are limited so people in need of treatment are often put on long waiting lists even for medical problems that could be life threatening.
  • Corruption
  • We can jack up prices and they'll never know.
  • They'll think it's free! Just add the cost to the general tax.
  • Since socialized medicine is administered by the government, it is also controlled by the government meaning that they have the power to decide what treatment you can receive.
  • My son is sick! He needs this!
  • Socialized health insurance only covers what is decided by the government meaning that you may still be paying out-of-pocket for many procedures.
  • I thought it was supposed to be free.
  • Socialized healthcare is a monopoly on the health insurance industry eliminating any competition and the opportunity for lower prices.  It's a form of crony capitalism.
