Good lord. Has anyone actually claimed that the US has the best health in the world?!

World’s Best Medical Care?

Published: August 12, 2007

Many Americans are under the delusion that we have “the best health care system in the world,” as President Bush sees it, or provide the “best medical care in the world,” as Rudolph Giuliani declared last week. That may be true at many top medical centers. But the disturbing truth is that this country lags well behind other advanced nations in delivering timely and effective care.

What constitutes the "best" heath care? What is the criteria we are dealing with?

Um...infant mortality rates? Life expectancy? Cost per capita?


Fluffy hippie speak.

Yup. As long as the metrics don't take into account saving the right people versus the wrong people, they're meaningless. No two people are equally deserving of the hypothetical health care dollar.
