I'm a Brit. I've lived in the US for about 35 years, but also retain a home on the other side of the pond. The British National Health Service (socialized health care) was instituted when I was a child. I've lived with it for most of my time, but still recall medicine before the NHS.
One becomes resigned to accepting socialized health care, because realistically there is no option. One knows, however, that quicker and better treatment is available elsewhere. And that life support will be removed earlier than elsewhere. Sad.
