A new US health report by the US National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine comparing the US to 16 other developed countries has once again highlighted the dreadful state of US healthcare.
The report which compares mortality rates between the 17 countries places one of the richest countries in the world, the US, squarely last.
Things are in bad shape (no pun intended) in the US and there is seems to be very little appetite to change things.
In 2007 the UN reported on life expectancy for those born between 2005-2010 which placed the US 38th in the world, even lower than Cuba, Chile and the United Arab Emirates.
America, lots of money, just in the hands of the very few wealthy while the vast majority suffer, long live capitalism!
Capitalism = Selfish
Socialism = Sharing
