k. allen a Thom Hartmann blogger just posted Israel receives 3 billion dollars a year (3000 million dollars) from a broke America, has single payer health care for all its citizens..
PLUS " Israel has a comprehensive social security system that pays out a series of benefits and grants to those in financial need. The social insurance system covers every citizen of Israel and the social assistance program is a series of means tested benefits that are applicable to those aged 20 or older."
PLUS besides giving all youth free education from kindergarden to the equivalent of grade 12, " Higher education is the only big-ticket item that’s still consistently and dramatically cheaper in Israel. The annual cost of tuition at an Israeli university (which is set by the government) is today $2,890."
PLUS "Israel’s abortion law now among world’s most liberal. Despite its conservative government leanings, government approves free pregnancy termination for nearly all women, and it barely causes a ripple."
