healthcare is a right, yet america treats it as a privilege
Everyone says universal healthcare would be impossible in the US because of the cost.
THE COST IS HIGH BECAUSE HEALTH INSURANCE COSTS ALMOST TWICE AS MUCH HERE THAN ANYWHERE ELSE.
You know what would make healthcare affordable for all? If the US govt would stop letting big pharma and privatized health insurance companies gouge our fucking eyes out.
Every developed country except America already has Universal Healthcare. That’s what students should be protesting.
I am also offended the schools feel they can require that of me. It’s my child and you should take my word for it. Petty, I guess, but it annoys me.
If it was free, you shouldn’t bog the system down with note seeking students/employees who know they’re sick and shouldt head into work.
Exception for long term absence.
My university had a policy that professors couldn’t require a doctor’s note, because students got a basic level of care provided by the university and they didn’t want to pay for hundreds of appointments for notes.
I went once, not knowing this, and got a letter at the doctor’s office that had been prepared by the university saying essentially, “Students here are adults. They can self-diagnose illness. You’re costing the university money. Stop.”
It was awesome.
This is a good ass point.
What kind of forehead is that ?
If it takes some of the sting out, my doctor’s office in Canada charges $20 for notes. That’s all they charge for though so y’all still have a lot to be mad about down south.
As a dual citizen myself, don’t believe that “best country in the world” mess, or the “it’s completely unaffordable” junk either. I’ve found a higher standard of living in a country where I wasn’t even born. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re wrong for expecting more.
It’s like we’re speaking a different language.
