Health Care Debate
Am I the only one who thinks that the health care system in America stinks? oh don't get me wrong, we have the best stuff around but if you're not Bill Gates, good luck trying to pay for or heck even gain access to that quality care.
Fact One: The United States ranks 23rd in infant mortality, down from 12th in 1960 and 21st in 1990
Fact Two: The United States ranks 20th in life expectancy for women down from 1st in 1945 and 13th in 1960
Fact Four: The United States ranks between 50th and 100th in immunizations depending on the immunization. Overall US is 67th, right behind Botswana
Fact Five: Outcome studies on a variety of diseases, such as coronary artery disease, and renal failure show the United States to rank below Canada and a wide variety of industrialized nations. (From the Connecticut Coliation for Universal Health Care).
I just find something very wrong in the United States, that as a citizen, living in the wealthiest nation on the planet, my health care is equivalent to that of a village woman in sub-saharan Africa.
