As for your comment: "It`s historically true that those on the lower end of the Socio-Economic Scale usually have a shorter life span so it is the responsibility of the Government of Israel to bring up the standard or living.. But you and I both know that the likelyhood of that is zero." The above is true of any country with regard to health care for weaker sections of the population. In fact I think that as far as Israel is concerned, you would be hard put to find a country that provides across the board health care for ALL its citizens as Israel does.
