>The Bolivian government under President Evo Morales has officially begun to register citizens for free universal health care that will be available in March.

>Health Minister Adolfo Zarate announced that a brigade of healthcare officials will go door-to-door throughout the country to register uninsured Bolivians between the ages of five and 60 until Jan. 28 in an initial phase. After that, registration will be continual.

>Zarate said that registration will take less than two minutes and informs residents of the precise location of their nearest healthcare facilities. Bolivians will also be able to register for the free, public healthcare at local health fairs.

>Starting in March the UHS will provide all Bolivians without insurance with free, quality medical attention that currently citizens have to pay for out of pocket or take out private insurance to cover. The government says that private insurance plans and people over the age of 60 already covered by social security will not be affected by the new plan.

woo, so now bolivia is gonna illegally smuggle even more doctors in from cuba!

Takes about 5 mins of google searching to conclude that this is just morales doing some minimum effort pandering to his supporters.

Would you be okay with lining up at 5:00 in the morning to see an under-trained and under-qualified cuban doctor sometime around 4 PM, if you even manage to get an appointment that day?

That's what bolivian "free" healthcare looks like. So yeah I'm pretty sure that wouldn't work in the US.

Yeah buddy, within the days that this was announced, you moved down to Bolivia, travelled forward in time to when this was actually implemented,scheduled a doctor's appointment, then travelled back in time to let us know what it present-tense "looks like".

Oh wait no you're just speculating on future shit you've never experienced because you're full of shit.

Dude 5 mins of googling will tell you that this is all just fluff.

Why not go read some accounts of actual bolivians, instead of immediately jumping on the hurr hurr fuck usa bandwagon like you've got no brain cells. Bolivian hospitals are shitty, overcrowded, have no medical supplies, and are staffed with doctors who are about as qualified as a US doctor from the 1930s. They're not gonna magically change because of some pittance PR decree from the bolivian government, and most bolivians can see through this smokescreen bullshit and know that it's just a way for morales to make it look like he's doing something for his muppet supporters.

Do those actual Bolivarians have time machines, too?

>Bolivian hospitals are shitty, overcrowded, have no medical supplies, and are staffed with doctors who are about as qualified as a US doctor from the 1930s.
And how exactly would these current problems with the current system be the fault of a future system that hasn't been rolled out yet?

Is this what pharma and insurance online shills have to resort to now? Pretending to not understand how time works?

lol ok so it's just gonna magically change overnight, because of .... communism magic. I guess morales is really pulling out all the stops in order to guarantee he gets elected president for a 14th year in a row.

We're talking about a country that did the same thing as venezuela: nationalize all oil production, and use that to pay for everything. But that strategy isn't going too well anymore, is it?

If that's really something that you think then that's your own damn fault for coming up with random shit that literally nobody else in this thread or the article ever claimed.

Actually I think you'll find that the Norwegians are largely quite satisfied with those decisions so I'm not sure why you would bring that up.

Don't be dense. Norway has never had its government overthrown by military dictators, nor does it currently have a president-for-life situation going on, which bolivia and venezuela both have going for them right now.

It sure is weird how you waited until now to say that this was your concern with Bolivia and thus able to see into their economic future.

Why did you waste time talking about oil if your actual problem was military dictatorships and term limits?

If one didn't know better, one might assume that you're just moving the goalposts in service of a preformed conclusion.

As far as your current soon to be former, I assume goalpost: Norway did indeed have a military dictatorship in recent history, and Bolivia hasn't had a military dictatorship since the early 1980s, so that's not really relevant to a program that will start in early 2019.

Your move.

Ok then. Go move to bolivia and enjoy your free healthcare. Then you can go shill for morales some more while his circle of elitist friends and family continue to loot the country for another decade.

All so that way you can pwn the usa, right?

This person seems very confused about basic facts about Bolivia, for example Evo Morales does have term limits, he's simply been reelected twice, largely because his presidency has overseen massive economic growth and a rise of living standards for the average Bolivian.

Accusations like "looting the country" seem more appropriate to aim at the previous government, which was in full on neo-liberal pro-foreign business globalization can only mean good for everyone mode when it was toppled after protests sparked by them privatizing the water supplies in a major city, and the private company promptly tripling the prices.

Cuban doctors are not illegal in Bolivia, I'm really not sure where he's even coming with this one because Cuban doctors aren't illegal in America either, and as a poor country without many if its own I'm sure they glad to see any increase of doctors at all.

I don't know dick about Bolivia, but a few minutes of googling is making most of what this guy says just look like standard Reagan era right wing fear mongering.

Evo Morales is about as good as a caudillo can get. The problem with the caudillo form is that the success of the whole political-economic project depends on the survival of the caudillo. Cuba maintains its system because it has a semi-functional mass democracy that keeps people sufficiently engaged in the running of their own affairs. If Bolivia is just a machine democracy, a purely "formal" democracy where people vote for the Big Man because that's just how it is, then the project dies with Morales.
