o’ why the worst of all?

US fee-for-service healthcare costs are off the chart.

Various comments on the cost of healthcare by National Geographic:

  1. This is a masterpiece of succinct communication showing clearly how extravagantly ineffective the US healthcare system really is. There are 14 single payer universal government plans that are not only one half the cost, but support a healthier population.
  2. This graph is dramatic, and I do not doubt its message.
  3. I wish this message could get to everyone, but most people belive that most of those countries with universal health care do not get as good of care as we do in the US.
  4. This graphic is a clear illustration of not only a broken health care system, but of a broken political system as well.
