Horrible US Healthcare

Horrible US Healthcare:

Remember how bad we were told US healthcare was during the Obamacare debates?

Well the facts and figures are in!.

US Cancer deaths have dropped 27% in 25 years (a little over 1% a year)

Where as European Cancer death rats have fallen a whopping 13% in 18 years (about 0.7% per year)

What people dont understand about US healthcare cost is how much of the brunt of medical R and D expense that Americans pay for, but benefit the entire planet.

We have a dear friend in the UK that was diagnosed with lung cancer about 8 months ago. The Brit HC system is slowly following it's protocols. Had she received that diagnosis here in the U.S.A. they would have been aggressively treating her for many months. I have no doubt that she is going to die this year because of the government-dictated protocols inherent to the "free health care" in the UK system.

Yep. No one likes admitting they receive positive externalities from others spending.
