I find them in Farmacias Similares consultation rooms all the time.
BTW, Mexico is a nation with universal health care and they have long waiting lines too for the free doctors.
But they have free health care. What is the excuse now for the USA? If Mexico the supposedly inferior nation with the drug kingpins and corrupt on the take cops and politicians can guarantee universal health care to all Mexican citizens and many older folks? Why can't the USA do the same? because GREED. because CAPITALISM is great and have to bankrupt a lot of people in order to take advantage of the desperation of the ill in a nation of freedom. Lol. Please.
I do not support the US system of healthcare.
Socialism in Medicine is a human right. Fight for it or believe stupid lies for the rest of your life as you lie dying in some ambulance scared about being billed $200,000 for some bacterial superbug eating away at your flesh that no longer responds to anti biotics and you face foreclosure on your house due to unpaid medical bills, because you needed the extra $2000 a month to pay bills instead of private health care insurance premiums in the USA.
Did you get that memo too or were the false lies about Cuba and Mexico and Puerto Rico your first source of information? Do not trust the mainstream bullshit media. They never report progress in other societies if their own has not improved in that area and the powerful who are being greedy and intransigent want it COVERED UP.
I haven't mentioned one word about Mexico. If you're going to accuse me of believing "lies" then please list the lies i have mentioned. Doctors are slaves in Cuba, they can't move out of Cuba without government consent, and I've posted the link regarding the policy. They're not allowed to leave because if they could many would. Many Cuban doctors abroad do a lot of good, they also are one of Cuba's biggest exports and make the country a ton of money.
I do believe healthcare is a right. You're assuming many positions i've never stated so please refrain from putting words in my mouth and creating strawmen. All I am doing is mentioning that socialized medicine isn't perfect. And it may work fairly well in Europe because they all share similar systems. In Canada it's mismanaged, you can't find a family doctor and waits for the ER and MRIs and mental health and many surgeries are long because of the reasons i've mentioned, and also because governments during COVID didn't give needed raises for nurses and doctors so many decided to quit or retire than work through it. Many have fled to the US over the decades for better pay. So if you want socialized medicine, you have to fund it adequately, otherwise it becomes a human rights issue because citizens don't have any other option but leave the country and pay out of pocket somewhere else. "Free" healthcare isn't great if there's no healthcare to be provided.
