Universal Health Care
It's inevitable. From a BDN editorial today:
Per capita U.S. health spending in the year 2000 was $4,631 - 44 percent higher than Switzerland, the second highest, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Canada's figure was only $2,333. America's health costs are an insupportable and fast mounting burden on employers and employees alike, as well as state governments.
Worse, we are not getting our money's worth. The United States does not make the top 20 in any of the World Health Organization's lists of countries with the highest life expectancies, the lowest infant mortality rates, and the lowest childhood mortality rates
