Expats overwhelmingly support mandatory health insurance of over 50s: Poll

Recommended Posts

What  a joke. Why dont they just get to the point and just ban foreighners from living here altogether. First telling us where to keep our money even tho we can prove sufficient income. Now telling us what to do with our health and how we choose to care for our selves. Anyone that chooses to bend over and be treated like that is pathetic.  I dont know who voted on that "poll " ,( more than likely thais and idiot back packers),   but its none of the expats I know. Some of which are leaving . You dont need to put up with this garbage in Colombia , Vietnam, Philippines, Ecuador or Mexico places I lived for an extended period of time which were nice and where I  wasn't harrased half as much as thailand. (BTW My income is 3x the required amt.)

"According to a straw poll on the Thaivisa Facebook page..."

 

Well, that's about as highly scientific and objective as it gets in Thailand. The only other research method which would represent the epitome of "science" in Thailand is if every respondent copied from the first one (aka - The smart kid) to answer the question. 

 

I would think that if there was a truly objective and scientific poll conducted, the majority or respondents would answer: "I'm moving to Vietnam. Where, if I choose to deposit $26,000 into a bank, it would earn me a decent amount of interest". 

yep, and that is why it is called a "straw poll"

"A straw poll or straw vote is an ad-hoc or unofficial vote."

Just get the proper insurance for living in Thailand. 

 

Just like most of you guys in this thread now and then will tell people to get the proper visa for living in Thailand. 

 

I mean it works the same in western countries 😏😂

 Why should I after 20 years here be put in the position where I would have to leave.

 

   i totally agree , after some 16 years in Thailand.

  I am certainly looking into my limited options. 

  Relocate in Asia ,  or reluctantly return to UK / Rip. with dignity.
