We’re Thirty-Seventh!

In the World Health Organization’s ranking of health care systems worldwide.

Do you think the Fordham Foundation’s Flypaper blog will devote the next two weeks to a Health Olympics, explaining how our showing behind such powerhouses as San Marino and Malta means economic disaster for the United States?

    I’m pretty happy with the healthcare I’ve gotten for my family!

    I would say that most Americans are happy with their healthcare. Do we need reform, yes. But the reforms such as TORT reform and others need to come gradually if they are to pass.

    You hit the nail on the head – start with tort reform. Countries with socialized medicine have caps on lawsuits etc..

    The point is that a growing number of Americans are denied the health care you enjoy, Stephen, and if this trend continues unabated, you and I will join them some day. All Americans should have the sort of health care we have as unionized workers and senior citizens have under Medicare.
