National Health Care
Posted by progressivethink on April 2, 2009
Just saw a great Frontline documentary on the crisis of healthcare in this country. It amazes me how the Republicans can essentially ignore this as an issue in this country. Frontline compares the 4 main types of systems that we could have here. Unfortunately 15% of the American population enjoys a healthcare system similar to people in Cambodia, or rural India. Strange when you consider America spends the most out of any other country on healthcare, yet fails to take care of 15% of the population. One upside of the economic downturn will be the increased clamor among the electorate for government to take some action on this issue, and dismiss those ridiculous rants about socialized medicine.
