    But we pay more than any other industrialized country for our #37 ranking

    The US is the only country where you can go bankrupt just for getting sick. 60% of personal bankruptcies are because of healthcare costs not financial mismanagement. And the majority of that 60% have healthcare

    Cool, that gives you 36 other countries to move to so you can have better healthcare.

    Makes a good point..

    US is #1 in Aircraft Carriers
    #1 in Nuclear weapons
    #1 in Tanks

    #37 in healthcare.

    We do not blink an eye at spending $1.5 billion a week in Afganistan and Iraq....that is PATRIOTISM

    But to spend money on the medical treatment for US citizens?.....That is SOCIALISM

    According to the Constitution, the government is responsible for funding the military. There is nothing in it or it's amendments that discusses providing health insurance for the citizenry.

    That being said, I do believe we should not be in Iraq or Afghanistan and should pull all of our troops that are not stateside and bring them home (This includes Germany, Japan, and South Korea).

    Once again we are not really 37. There are NO stabdards, each Country is free in each category reported to use what ever system they want to report with.

    For example.... Live Births. In the US EVERY child that is alive AT the moment of birth is listed as a live birth, even the ones that have no chance of surviving more then a couple hours on their own. In other Countries live birth may mean the kid is a week old before they declare it a live birth.

    And every category is like that. One can NOT compare Countires when one can not even know what the standard for repo0rting is and it is not a standard system for ALL countries.

    Maybe we should stop spending 20 billion a year in foreign aid.
