U.S. Ranks 35th In Longevity, Behind Those The Far-Right Calls Socialize Medicine Countries
With the far-right screaming all sorts of misleading and made up information concerning Health Care Reform, you also hear them say that Health Care Reform is just another word for socialized medicine and then they proceed to say how bad the Canadian; French; British and Swedish systems are compared to the “wonderful care” we receive here in this Country.
The Republican “thuggery” goes so far as spreading lies about “Death Panels” for seniors and “Death Books” for veterans.
Maybe the Republican leadership should take a look at the rankings of the Countries they criticize and their life expectancy compared to the US.
Canada is ranked 6th in the UN member states in longevity.
France is ranked 7th with Sweden ranked 8th and the United Kingdom coming in at 25th.
So where does the present American Health Care rank in longevity of it’s people, just after Portugal and ahead of Albania, number 35.
