    "US health care costs more because people in the US are sicker"

    Ever try and figure out why? Has Europe got some magic juice?

    Not one link from the Hard Right to support your arguments... Use of hearsay and my cousin got sick once...

    We have used world respected organisations, peer reviewed studies...

    You have nothing....

    It's a lifestyle issue. Europe also has many fewer cars as people live in old crowded cities.
    ANything else you need help figuring out? Just ask me. I'll set you straight.

    You have used biased worthless sources. And even though this has been pointed out over and over you perist like it didnt exist. We have even pointed out the source of the biases (subjective questions like "are you happy with your healthcare", measurements that assume more government control is better, etc). And yet you persist. What does this say about your ability to reason?

    Everyone in the USA is already insured through medicare/medicaid. DUH!

    There are two issues at hand:

    1) Some people are dead beats and this government is insane, thus everyone gets to cover the bills of the dead beats.
    2) Some people live in lollipop land where money grows on trees and everyone gets to be the six million dollar man in exchange for a few pennies and millions of wishes.

    The amount of money one can spend on one person's health care can exceed the assets of every single human being on the planet. Should we spend 200 trillion dollars to save one life? No? You would sacrifice one life for money?
