Sicko

Monday, June 18, 2007

I remember being told that countries with universal health care had tremendous waiting times for surgeries and that the care was quite below U.S. quality.

A baby born in El Salvador has a better chance of surviving than a baby born in Detroit.

A baby born in the United States has a 36% greater chance of dying than a baby born in Great Britain.

I saw Michael Moore’s new movie, Sicko.

And I am pissed.

Surprisingly enough, for me, this time it’s not at Michael Moore.

I sense a theme this week coming on.

The lesson of the day is Sometimes everything they tell you is wrong.

    So you think that life expectancy is exclusively governed by health care? Maybe there are other factors? There are plenty of problems in the US. Health care is not one of them.
