So here’s some videos. The top is the most recent.
The Aspen Institute compares the U.S. healthcare to those of ten other developed nations, on five main domains of performance, using 72 indicators.
Over the last 20 years they’ve been doing this, the top three performers have been the United Kingdom, Australia and the Netherlands.
The lower perform, a constant over the last 20 years is the United States.
“the United States is by far, the highest spender, if there was an olympic competition for healthcare spending, the United States would take gold, silver and bronze. Hands down”.
The U.S. spends 30% more per capita than it’s nearest competitor, Switzerland and twice as much as the other countries looked at.
Mortality levels and outcomes of care, (America) “is dead last”, and improving less rapidly, or actually declining. America is in it’s second year of decline (as of 2018) which has never happened anywhere else in the developed world.
Someone touched on a concern that the nations with socialised healthcare are the worst affected by the pandemic.
Lets have a look at that.
Countries with socialised healthcare and those without.
(India while not presently one, is in the process of being one).
Those without look to be, Mauritius, Mali, Niger, Chad, Sudan, Mozambique, Angola, Iraq, Syria, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, etc... and America.
But that logic is odd. Yes, despite America being so densely populated than the vast number of heavily populated and densely populated countries
Here’s the thing, of the only non socialise healthcare countries in the developed world, the U.S. has the highest number of cases (yes, I know we can’t trust China’s numbers. So non socialised healthcare isn’t working for you either.
Now these figures below aren’t from some tea drinking, cheese eating, paella munching, espresso sipping, commie, sauerkrauts, these are U.S. numbers.
So how can any Americans say they have the best healthcare.
That’s like getting punched in the face, then asking to be kicked in the balls, saying thank you, paying for it, then asking to do it again but if they wouldn’t mind setting you alight this time.
“but why should I pay for others to get sick”, that’s how insurance works, you pay healthcare insurance, house insurance, car insurance, etc...
“why should I give my money to government, I don’t trust them” you give money to them already, this is simply giving a little more to government AND NOT PAYING FOR THE HEALTH INSURANCE YOUR CURRENTLY PAYING FOR, SO YOUR SAVING MONEY.
This isn’t a question any, ANYONE, is expected to get wrong.
