Stop Me If You've Heard This Already!

The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money! :rimshot:


In related news, Greece has a socialized healthcare system. The government pays, mostly. When you go to the pharmacy, the cost is from 0% to 25% for your pills. That is, until the government ran out of other people's money last month and now pharmacies are not being reimbursed for medicines. Now pharmacies have started charging full price for medicines when people go to get their prescriptions filled.

Note that, as a Capitalist I would love this all to pieces, except that the bottomless-bucket-of-money insurance plans have driven the cost of medicines through the roof. You can't have a half-free market work right.
