A National Health Service is not easy for any nation, but a country's citizens must be big enough to accept that high principles cost.
I believe that the establishment of a properly functioning NHS as we have in the UK (It struggles under the weight but it works.) has value greater than the medical care of it's citizens.
Every worker knows that a little piece of his working day is donated to caring for those whom are, at that moment suffering. Every week we in the UK show how we value every human in our borders no matter who they are or where they are from.
Every 11th word a typist types, Every 11th brick laid by Every bricklayer, every Eleventh cake baked by every baker, goes to supporting those with the skills to cure the injured and sick.
Every 11th minute of every citizens working day is spent on supporting the needs of those in need of care.
That is a GREAT feeling - knowing that our country is THAT caring - it makes every job more worthy, every worker more key.
There is an underlying understanding that ALL are working to ensure ALL is 'as well as it can be' for ALL within our nations borders, it's an ethos of while your in our house we'll look after you. A distinct but marginal leap from being a good host.
As far as I am concerned that feeling of benevolent security alone is worth the cost of supporting the health service with every eleventh minute of your working day and far more rewarding than a new TV or an extra round of drinks at the bar.
