No it's not the same thing at all, and "state funded" and "nationalised" shouldn't be elided either.

I'm not sure you understand what a correlation is. Chronological age is correlated with emotional maturity but it doesn't cause it. I don't think it's plausible to say a 12 or 13 year old who has...

Why don't you be more precise about your complaints then? Coz America's healthcare is so far from being nationalised I don't even know what you're complaining about.
