Remember people like Rush L., Glenn Beck, congressmen such as Boehner & Mitch McConnel saying the USA had the best medical care in the world???? A recent National Geographic report shows the USA in 2009 spent per capita, per person $7,300.00 for health care while Japan spent $2,600 per person. Now get this; the average life expectancy in Japan is 83 yr.s while the USA's has dropped to 78 yr.s. Switzerland spent the 2nd most, $4,400.00 and their life expectancy is 82 yr.s. Now this morning I read the US lags as child mortality rates plummet. Yes, the USA now ranks 42 in the world as they saw a 42% decline in child mortality, a pace that is on a par with Kazakhstan, Sierra Leone and Angola. I just can't see how people such as I mentioned above can stand up on TV and tell such out & out lies just so they can stuff more $$$ in their own pockets. I guess they think all people are stupid and will believe anything they say. Unfortunately a lot are.

If Americans Die in a Pandemic - Blame the GOP

Thom plus logo As a possible pandemic looms on the horizon, the United States is the only developed nation in the world without a national healthcare system. Medicare For All is not just about saving as much as half of all of our half healthcare dollars, it's also about national security.
