Does anyone know what the income tax and VAT taxes are in the Nordic countries to pay for all this free stuff? I know a family from Holland and he told me his income tax rate pushed 65% and you literally pay double for a car vs the costs here in the U.S. He told me that there is always a long wait to see a doctor unless it's a major emergency. The quality of care isn't great and that is why they moved here.
There is no such a thing as free anything and there is always a cost to someone to pay for everyone else. Any system that steals from one person to support another is a failure. Their population is nothing compared to the U.S. and the larger the numbers, the more difficult it is to socialize. I deal with the Swiss and their attitude towards SOCIALIZED is amazing. The pay huge taxes, but don't have property taxes. Their total population is a touch over 8 million and is much easier to manage. When comparing entitlements, we have to look at the real numbers too.
