Geneva (AFP) - Swiss voters on Sunday rejected a plan for a seismic shift from the country's all-private health insurance system to a state-run scheme.





Referendum results showed that almost 62 percent of voters had shot down a reform pushed by left-leaning parties which say the current private system is busting the budgets of ordinary residents.

The results also underlined the national divisions over the hotly-contested issue as the country's German-speaking regions voted against the plan, while their French-speaking counterparts were in favour.

Switzerland's private insurance lobby hailed the vote.

"The Swiss population does not want a single national scheme," said the Swiss Insurance Association.

"Our health system is among the top performers in the world. Competition between health insurers and freedom of choice for clients play a major role in this," it added.

Swiss are a lot smarter than your average Obama lover.....they understand giving government more and more control of your life gives you less and less control of it...

Too bad U.S. voters weren't given the opportunity to vote on Oblamercareless. Guarantee you it never would have passed once all the gory details were exposed.......

That quote from Nancy Pelosi....The gift that keeps on giving!....Unfortunately you are correct..the freebie/everybody owes me something entitlement society elects/re-elects these clowns... As long as there are politicians that are willing to hand out freebies like shiny trinkets to gain political favors there will be those that will do whatever is necessary to keep and increase their entitlements at the expense of the working middle class...

With the cost of living skyrocketing and middle class wages falling far behind I have to wonder who is going to carry the log in a few years for the career entitlement class?

If our current path is continued... the government will take an even much larger role in every aspect of day to day living...BUT...may get a new phone outta the deal!...

Maybe the Swiss will begin to enter illegally and get voting rights to help.... Switzerland, Germany, and other countries that had government run healthcare have or are reversing their direction away from such programs...We however seem to be continuing in the wrong direction...
