Here's your American health care system
Here's the latest on our American health care system:
U.S. scores dead last again in healthcare study
(Reuters) - Americans spend twice as much as residents of other developed countries on healthcare, but get lower quality, less efficiency and have the least equitable system, according to a report released on Wednesday.
The United States ranked last when compared to six other countries -- Britain, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand, the Commonwealth Fund report found.
The highest cost in the world with the least, worst results for what we pay for in that same health care.
Yet so many of us are pushing back on the attempt at a fix that was and is the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.
