The Best Health Care In The World

Not here:
"Britain's health service makes it the only one of 11 leading industrialised nations where wealth does not determine access to care – providing the most widely accessible treatments at low cost among rich nations, a study has found.

The survey, by US health thinktank the Commonwealth Fund, showed that while a third of American adults 'went without recommended care, did not see a doctor when sick, or failed to fill prescriptions because of costs', this figure was only 6% in the UK and 5% in Holland."

Yes, Joel -- but do you really want to live like Britons? In small houses and riding public transportation like an animal?

Found a nice article that gives the Paul Harveyesque "RRRest of the story"

Headline "Liberal thinktank headed by former Carter official stands behind Obamacare through a series of misleading statistics" Yeah not as sexy.
