I am from Europe and can confirm the truth of this...so called "socialised medicine" is hardly new or even due to socialism...in England my life was saved twice and no-one got into huge debt because of it...here all it takes is one ambulance ride and a few nights in hospital (forget about operations) and you owe thousands....how can this be helpful or fair? To have the poor afraid to get injured or sick because they'll be in debt forever? I am out of work now and, if i got hit while driving or became injured seriously i'd be ruined...
 
All these tweets about moving to Canada because of the Obamacare ruling are amusing and foolish, of course, since Canada has had socialized medicine for almost fifty years:

http://www.buzzfeed.com/daves4/people-moving-to-canada-because-of-obamacare

Anyway, that got me wondering where these poor uninformed folks could actually move to instead.  Canada is out, as I mentioned, as are most European countries (England, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Spain...), Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Argentina, Brazil... basically, most of the countries that Americans enjoy visiting all have full-blown socialized medicine programs that make Obamacare look tame by comparison.  A quick search led me to the Wikipedia entry for "universal health care", which has the handy map you see below.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_health_care

The orange countries have universal healthcare, the grey countries do not, the yellow countries are going universal, and the few brown countries apparently have healthcare coverage funded by the US.

So for all the Obamacare refugees-to-be out there, I have some great news!  To escape the tyranny of Obamacare and satisfy your non-nationalized medicine cravings, you still have plenty of options all around the world.  Pretty much anywhere in Africa fits the bill.  You can also check out China and North Korea, which should hopefully put to rest any claims that universal health care is somehow linked to Communism.  It looks like Indonesia and the Philippines are also fair game if you prefer living by the beach in a warm, tropical climate.  There are also some places in South America that seem to be holding firm against the orange tide of universal health care, such as Colombia and Peru, and they're close enough to the States that you can still visit your friends every once in a while and offer them your sympathies for having to pay for their mandatory health coverage under Obamacare while you're living large in the Andes.

So there you have it.  With so many great choices available, it'd be a real shame to waste any more time when you could move right away and be nicely settled into your new, non-socialized-medicine country well before this November.  Bon voyage!  (No, France is not an option -- their medical care is one of the most socialized in the world.  Their government also makes you take like six weeks of vacation every year.  You'd hate it.)

Great graphic, good info. I find that what people want and how it is done makes the difference in the US lately.

I am British so know a good curry when i see one and had been dying for one since i came to New Mexico and here it is! The tikka masala is exquisite and reminds me of home and the other dishes are perfect, the pappadums are crisp, the lime pickle just hot enough and the basmati rice gorgeous. The staff are great and so polite too! Also i proposed to my fiancee in there and the atmosphere was just right. Will we be going back, for sure we will!
