Madrid Demonstration - Spanish view of US Hospitals

While we were in Madrid, we passed a demonstration in Plaza del Sol. Plaza del Sol, we were told, is the demonstration capital of Spain.

We were with some spaniards, and one told me in english that the demonstrators were "nurses". (I would figure out later that he meant "nannies", not RNs/LPNs/BNs, etc.)

I told him I worked in a U.S. hospital. He shook his head and told me: "Here in Spain, all hospitals are good for all people. In the United States, they care more about your wealth than your health."

I really wasn't sure how to reply to this. Any thoughts?
