    Thought these were rather interesting for those of you who insist we have a crisis and simply must enact, single payer, government run health care.

    Yes, it is facinating. Not surprised that Greenbeard, Chris, or rockhead hasn't responded.

    While I enjoy a good laugh, I have to say that statistics need to be taken in context.

    It is hard, however, to ignore what has been posted here in terms of health care.

    As for Obama's cabinet, I'd like to know who the eight percent are ? They must have been real losers in the private sector. I know Valerie Jarrett was a slumlord...but she does not count. She is not on his cabinet..she is under his desk.

    Specifically what context do you think we should be taking these statistics in that will change their obvious message?

    Nice cherry picked stats.

    Now post a cost comparison and rate cost increase comparison with 10 year cost projections.

    Yeah, because it's not whether or not you're more likely to die in the UK and Canada. What's important is that it'll be cheaper to die there than to live here! :eusa_hand:

    Frigging moron.

    I don't deny that health care costs a lot here. But cost is the only factor of our health care system. You libs are so naive as to believe if you just make it cheap for everyone that it's going to fix things.

    Can you tell me where you got these stats? I'd like to spread the message around to some of the liberal loonies I know.

    I believe these statistics. However, there are issues with things like costs and accessibility that I believe should be included.
