“Changes in American Healthcare”
There is good news and bad news for America’s healthcare system. The good news is that the exorbitantly expensive atrocity called “Obama-care” appears to be on the critical list and will most likely not survive, especially since the majority of states are suffocating it with a pillow of law suits. That is about the extent of the good news and there is a laundry list of examples of bad news because American healthcare needs “intensive care.” For starters, the U.S. continues to spend far more that other industrialized nations on healthcare, with per capita spending on healthcare now topping $8,000 a year, more than double most industrialized countries. Second, Americans die far more frequently than their counterparts in other countries as a result of preventable or treatable conditions, such as bacterial infections, screenable cancers, diabetes and complications from surgery.
