    As we continue to water down our revised healthcare bill, the US falls further and further behind other industrialized countries. The US is the richest country in the world. Countries such as Germany, Japan, Italy, France and England that we bailed out after WWII now provide superior healthcare to the US.

    Why shouldn't the US lead the world in how well we treat our people?

    And you think this constitutes a comeback.

    A healthcare system where only multimillionaires receive proper treatment? What about the guy earning $20K per year? Hows his treatment?

    Rightwinger, your very name labels you as a liar. You're no more a rightwinger than Obama is. And the truth is, America has the best healthcare in the world. Just saying it ain't so doesn't change the truth.

    That person trying to raise a family on $20K per year in England or Canada only needs to show his healtcare card and receives top level treatment. In this country, he can go to an emergency room and claim poverty.

    " A 2008 mortality study in the journal Health Affairs found the U.S. had the highest rate of deaths among 19 countries from conditions that could have been prevented or treated successfully "
