In 10 years
- You'll have to go through a "health care agent" to get approval for every tiny procedure and prescription, and probably wont get it half the time
- Endless paperwork (that will, of course, like any bureaucracy, get rejected on any of the tiniest of procedural mistakes) whenever you deal with that agent
- Queuing lines. Not just physical ones when you visit a health care bureaucracy office, but virtual ones where you have to wait your turn just to hear back for someone.
- Praying you don't get a life threatening disease in an advanced stage or critical onset rate for fear that you die before Agents and Procedures help you ("Sorry, we have other sick people to help. You're not the only one. Get back in line!")
- Being called a criminal if you try to see a physician or specialist outside of the bureaucracy.
- Being told you make too much money to qualify for certain medical benefits and procedures, even though you pay more taxes, because low income citizens are "more needy" than you.
- Not having anywhere left in the world to fly your child too that doesn't have socialized medicine when your child's gallbladder cancer has metastasized again and it will take 3 weeks just to get it tested again. Who knows. Maybe you can go to China. Hopefully you'll have the money pay off the state officials there.
- Calling your representatives after everyone has found out what a nightmare socialized medicine has become and being told that even though politicians created it, they can't "undo" it because studies show the bureaucratic medical system couldn't handle the transition.
