OK, explain this to me then: the landgrab does not exist in other areas, or so I have been told. I love my place near Alicante but don't understand the hostility by the authorities. We expats have now been denied our right to free health care, unless we pay the unfair 250€ pcm fee, regardless whether we work or not. I have no problem paying it if I have a job but if I just live there and haven't got one, then I do mind. After all, I am spending my hard earned euros in Mercadona, Carrefore, etc, to benefit the local economy and am getting b****r all for it.
