Health Care: We Pay More, Die Sooner!

Have a quick look at this chart. (Via Matthew Yglesias.)

Now explain to me why paying massively more on healthcare per capita than ANY other country in the world, while not achieving greater life expectancy equates to the "best healthcare system in the world."

Some Americans get the best health care in the world. Many get none at all. Most, however have pretty good care at criminally insane prices. This system must be fixed.

Great minds...I just saw another chart, only not with a graph, that I was going to post. The data came from the CIA world facts page, but I had trouble finding it there.

Anyway, we should all be so lucky to live in France. Or better yet, Andorra.
