How Singapore Solved Healthcare
TL;DR: The government forces people to save for their own shit. They eliminated free healthcare, and instead "tax" citizens similar to FICA taxes, which force people to save THEIR OWN MONEY for health care, retirement, and general savings. Yes, the government taxes you and forces you to save your own money so you don't cry to the government later.
Paternalistic? Absolutely, but you can't argue with the results.
@aerith A welfare state requires taxpayers to fund the benefits for those who are disabled and retired. The main way a society maintains it's supply of workers (and taxpayers) is by having babies.
When a society stops having babies, they run into an issue where there are too many people on benefits, and not enough workers to support the system with taxes.
Governments are forced to turn to immigration in order to replace the workers who weren't born, which results in demographic replacement.
