Where are the "socialised medicine sux" crowd now??

The very first paragraph spells it out. This is not a poll. This is scientific.
"The United States places last among 19 countries when it comes to deaths that could have been prevented by access to timely and effective health care, according to new research supported by The Commonwealth Fund and published in the January/February issue of Health Affairs.

Did you know there is one drug salesperson for every 11 doctors?
The current system is broken. I worked for a major Managed Care Organization for seven years. There are a lot of hard working people just like most companies, but the botom line is too often improved by less care.
I know that WHO is a commie pinko organization, but here is some data to mull over.
They'll grow up in poverty, but at least they'll be healthy...
