Best health care in the world

Here's how broken our health financing system is: We not only spend waaay more total dollars per person on health care than any other nation, we spend more tax dollars per person than everyone else but Norway and Luxembourg. For this, we have millions uncovered, and the health outcomes for those of us who are covered are worse. Are we idiots?

The morons who are screaming lies about "death panels" must really enjoy overspending on less.

We can afford it - we make more than these countries. Is there nothing about this country you can't complain about? (OK, that was to provoke)

We can't afford it. Next week, when we're talking about Medicare, you'll agree.
