Yeah! We're number 10!

United Press International

The United States has one of the highest rates of infant mortality in the industrialized world…

Of the 125 countries listed, Sweden ranked first, or safest, followed by Denmark, Finland, Austria, Germany, Norway, Australia, Netherlands, Canada, United States and Britain.

10th?? The US ranks TENTH?? The US health care system gets a double star. It’s the most expensive in the world, by far… and in the developed world, it sucks the most.

What do Richard Nixon and Hillary Clinton have in common? They both backed nationalized, single pay health care systems. And they both were right.

The United States has some of the cheapest healthcare in the world, not the most expensive. Whether you pay the doctor bill directly, or through your insurance company, or in your taxes, you always pay for it, and you pay far less for it overall in the US.

Quick quiz: which is more expensive? A $1,000,000 cancer treatment, or the lack of a cancer treatment because it doesn't exist, or the lack of a cancer treatment because you have to sit on a two year waiting list to be pre-screened for determining elligibility for being considered for getting an appointment with an oncologist in a socialist single-payer health care system?

You failed. Pity, because I haven't even gone into the flawed infant mortality statistics.
