Selling Healthcare Again?

Try these on and see if you really want to mimic the UK or Canada. (Statistics from the United Nations Internat'l Health Organization. If it were slanted it would certainly tilt the socialist way, right?

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer 5 years after diagnosis:
U.S. 65% - England 46% - Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who rec'd treatment within 6 months:
U.S. 93% - England 15% - Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within 6 months:
U.S. 90% - England 15% - Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
U.S. 77% - England 40% - Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners ( a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
U.S. 71% - England 14% -Canada 18%

Percentage of seniors (65+) with low income, who say they are in excellent health:
U.S. 12% - England 7% - Canada 6%

Another interesting group of numbers:
You have to go back to Harry Truman to find the percentage of his cabinet members who worked in the private sector at 50% followed by Johnson at 47%, but after that Kennedy, Carter, and Clinton had 30% or more until you come to Obama who has 8%. That's right! 92% of the people surrounding Obama (including himself) have never held a private sector job. Ford at 42% and all other Republicans back to Eisenhower all had over 50% of their cabinet members who knew first hand about business. What does that make you think about who is running the show? No wonder the American public has such little confidence in the state of the economy and the future for their children!

God bless.......
