    Least succesful health care system? how so? I know its expensive but if oil rich Sheikhs come here for treatment instead of the other countries on this list, I don't think its so bad.

    Again, you should question the premises of those studies.

    You say other countries score higher in education, yet I know for a fact that far more European students go to US universities than the reverse.

    A fancy way of saying that the ends justify the means.

    BTW, things like lifespan and infant mortality are far more subject to culture and lifestyles than whether or not you have socialized medical services.

    The US is the #1 supporter of the UN and those ungrateful Star Wars bar scene slobs take every opportunity to trash the US. People are dying in the desert to get to the greatest Country in the world and every sick foreign SOB comes to the US for the greatest medical treatment in the world. Yeah, were still #1 even though the left wing media feeds negative stuff to fools who hate their own Country or bigger fools who pretend to be Americans and hate the USA.
