HEALTH CARE COSTS AROUND THE WORLD ... LOWER LIFE EXPECTANCY, HIGHEST COSTS IN THE UNITED STATES

Via Virtual Capitalist we get "U.S. Healthcare is a Global Outlier, and Not in a Good Way." It provides another way of looking at how out of whack our health care system is, even after Obamacare came into force.

For all Republicans who claimed doom and gloom after the Affordable Care Act was passed (yes, the ACA is Obamacare) be sure to see (and try to understand) how per capita healthcare costs in America grew before Obamacare, and how fast they accelerated during the Reagan-Bush I years.

Put more simply, Obamacare has slowed down a cost trend that began long before Obamacare arrived on the scene.
