No, Italy Is Not the Case Against Medicare for All

The Italian healthcare system, Servizio Sanitario Nazionale (SSN), has gone through many changes since the 1990's, including privatization and spending cuts, due to what the author of this article calls the "Americanization" of universal healthcare. She makes the claim that when the pandemic hit, the Italian government had to intervene to handle the emergency, but universal healthcare was not to blame for the arising problems.

Vale Disamistade explains the structure and history of SSN, the problems Italy faced with regards to the pandemic and what we as Americans need to be aware of, in light of the COVID-19 crisis in the United States.
