>Downgrading American Medical Care

That image above is from a report in the American Spectator by Betsy McCaughey (the former Lieutenant Governor of New York State) on the true cost of medical care in the United States. It demonstrates that Americans still pay approximately the same for combined food and medical care expenses. As food costs less of the family budget, more is spent on medical care. The reason is that food is less expensive, not that people don’t buy food because they have to pay for medical bills.

She also points out that our US survival rates for cancer are much better than those in countries that have longer waiting periods and that spend less on health care.
