@EJ! You have a lot of good questions. I’ll answer to the best of my ability.
In the grander scheme of things, most Danes appreciate our free healthcare system. Naturally, this system is supported by paying the most taxes of almost any country in the world. We have a tax system where those with the broadest shoulders carry the heaviest burden (the rich etc.)
However, the right wing politicians know that their voters are the wealthy people and the industries, so they usually promise that the rich will pay less taxes if they vote for them. These political parties still appreciate the healthcare though. The only party that doesn’t appreciate this is the liberal party of Denmark, that claims that we should be more like America.
We have a newly elected socialist government, so I’m fairly optimistic.
Our healthcare is mostly loved and appreciated. The only issues I have with our healthcare system are the tax evaders who hide their money in Panama and won’t contribute, which obviously damages the system as a whole. The other problem is the waiting times you sometimes have for a surgery in the public system, which sometimes causes the more affluent to seek private treatment for money, thus undermining the system a little bit.
Otherwise it is very amazing to know that your country has your back if you get sick. 10/10 would recommend.
