The Kaiser Family Foundation published a study, including this chart of 2003 data, comparing American health care costs to other developed nations and the only thing that has changed is the percentage of our GDP allocated to health care today, around 17%. This in the face of those who are screaming bloody murder that we could end up with some expensive health care albatross such as England or Canada. We already have a health care albatross hanging around our necks. Nevertheless, the conservative opposition would rather continue the current inefficient, wasteful, expensive non-system. Go figure.
I posted this yesterday with a graph leading it off. It was displayed for a while but has now become nothing but a little blue box with a question mark inside. Don’t know how to fix it.
