In spite of the fact the US pays over $8000 per person for health care we have the worst health care in the industrialized world.

http://medicalholocaust.blogspot.com/

1. America spends $7,290 per capita on health care, far more than other countries. That was in 2005. We now spend over $8,000 per capita.(Thanks to corporate gangsters running health care in the US)

2. America spent $2.4 trillion on health care in 2008. That's nearly as much as food, clothing, and national defense combined.(When they have us by the balls our hearts and minds will follow)

3. From 2000 to 2007, health care premiums increased 10.6% per year. In the same period, overall inflation averaged only 2.8%.(Greedy treasonous corporatist bastards hate America and Americans)

4. A majority of Americans complain that their doctors neither spend enough time with them nor respect them.(Most doctors are greedy arrogant fuckers)

5. Only 28% of U.S. doctors use electronic medical records. 90% do in the U.K.(That way the can more easily alter medical records to cover medical errors and/or commit billing fraud)

6. Most doctors in Europe are paid based on performance. In America, this is true with only 30 percent.(That's because greedy US doctors try to cram as many patient visits in a day as possible)

7. 41% of U.S. adults have problems paying medical bills and many are hounded by collection agencies.(Because US health care is TOO expensive. Given its quality it 90% too expensive)

8. American kids are three times as likely to be prescribed antidepressants than kids in Europe.(The corporate fascists have been dumbing down our kids for decades)

9. A quarter of Americans throw away prescriptions because they can't afford to fill them.(Being that most new medications do more harm than good maybe they are doing themselves a favor)

10. 42% of Americans said hospital staff do not always explain medicines and side effects.(More greed and arrogance! AND... they just don't give a shit!)

11. Health care spending dwarfs the $1.3 trillion of combined profitability generated by every corporation in America.(It's about control.)

12. A quarter of America's children have untreated tooth decay or cavities.(My dentist is old school and he does a lot of pro bono work for poor kids)

13. 20% of Americans report having had a lab, medical, or medication error (tied for worst with Australia).(This is not surprising. US health care is the worst in the industrialized world.)

14. Doctors spend $210 billion per year on procedures based on fear of liability, not patient need.(At least that is what those over paid incompetent malingerers claim.)

15. 30,000 infants die in the U.S. each year.(The US has a high infant mortality rate compared to many other countries.)

16. Compared to the British, Americans are three times as likely to have diabetes.(Diabetes is big money. Keep em fat and ignorant and take their money)

17. More than a quarter of Texans don't have access to affordable health care. 100% of Mexicans do.(Even poor third world country treats people better. At least Texas is really good and lethal injections. Yep, the doctors swab the victim's arm with alcohol.)

18. America has half as many doctors per capita as
Greece.(They say the Greeks invented buggering. The US health care system certainly perfected it.)

19. Medicare operates with 3% overhead. Non-profit insurance has a 16% overhead. Private insurance has a higher overhead, at 26%.(It kinda looks like Barney Frank was right about single payer.)

20. As health care costs escalate, even private insurers are making less money.
