    America Spends The Most On Health Care, Yet Gets The Least : NPR

    almost twice as much per person as the next country. talk about broken and self destructing.... now imagine if only we had a system where there wasn't middle man companies jacking up the rates on people in order to enrich their people at the top at the expense of their customersr live's and health. :eusa_whistle:

    That "more" we spend is called Profit.

    The conclusion isn't new, it's just been reiterated by a new study.

    Although by this point I suppose it does have a bit of a "Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead" feel to it.

    USA gets the least? I really don't buy that.

    Is it worse than in North Korea or the Congo?

    Yes, we do pay the most. No, we don't get the least. But no, we aren't getting the best value for our money. Yes, it can be improved. No, the health care deform passed by the Democrats won't improve anything.
