Let's all agree that nothing is free.
Free education? After 65% tax? And I didn't even go to college.
Free Health Care? Nothing is free. 25% sales tax on everything you buy.
Infrastructure? Roads are really not that great.. I envy the US 4 lane highways.
Most of the 180% registration tax is spent on public transportation. My money on something i don't use.
Oh.. and free public transport then? NO.. Busticket one stop.. 4 USD. I drove from the tip of south beach to aventura like a year ago, for like 2 bucks. (FL)
Welcome to the communist world.
And by the way.. we just took at jump on the wealthy list. From nr. 6 to nr. 13.
28% unemployement rate.
We have 1 million people in the private sector, taking care of 4 million people. (5 mio citizens in DK)
So what i'm trying to say is that nothing is free. not even Obama's health care
In fact.. everytime you make something public.. something the government should handle, it becomes inaffective and it will cost your society way more money, than if it were dealt with by the private sector which has to compete.
Denmark will take many more steps down the wealthy countries ladder. We are too inaffactive. Too many people doing nothing. Living on wellfare.
One of my friends just got on welfare.. 25 years old.. didn't meet the requirements to attend drama school.. made two fake jobapplications and went to the wellfare office. Telling them he got a no.
He went home that day with 1800 USD. It should cover the rest of the month. Until the government transfers more. That night he wanted to go clubbing.
That's why i have to pay 65% tax.. 25% salestax and 180% registration tax on cars.
And we haven't even talked about (Green) taxes. On water, heat etc. World high.
