Global Death Panel: America?

1 post / 0 new

A new study in the British medical Journal Lancet finds that men in Iceland and women in Cyprus have the lowest risk of dying worldwide. And where is America? 49th for women and 45th for men behind Peru, Chile and Libya. Our screwed up - but hugely profitable for a few guys like Stephen J. Hemsley, CEO of United Healthcare, who earned more than $700 million for five years work - health care system is leading Americans to an early death, and nothing significant about it will change for years unless people in individual states rise up and start single payer health care systems.

We Need to Listen to the Founders and Stop the Forever War.

Just a little over a year ago during his speech at the National Defense University here in Washington, D.C., President Obama talked about winding down Bush’s War on Terror. But as American bombers continue to strike against ISIS in Iraq and now Syria, it now looks like the War on Terror will be with us for years to come. And that’s a really dangerous thing for our democracy.
