25. I would have to say Great social coverage in France ... and that includes more than healthcare ...

An associates mother in law who resides in France and is elderly became sick and feeble ... all her healthcare, nursing home, and assisted living expenses paid for, not a single dime out of her pocket ... and the care is excellent with the home she lives in being on the coast ... almost spa like living ...

In contrast to my father who is 93 and a couple of years ago we were talking about him having to someday go to a nursing home or assisted living ... well, he checked into it and like the other 99% of Americans could not afford either one ... so lately, because he is a veteran of the big war ... he has looked into getting benefits from the VA ... he says to me the other day that he not only can get healthcare benefits but will not have to worry about a nursing home or assisted living ... now the story turns out OK for him, but if you are not a veteran in the USA, you might as well be a piece of trash to our insurance laden medical system today ...
