The statistics are very sad and eye opening. 48 million Americans do not have health care insurance. The U.S. spends 17% of GDP when delivering medical services. Millions are forced into bankruptcy every year because they can not afford the the high bills that the medical-industrial complex hands out to them.
Americans are being screwed left and right.
In the meantime, the Brigades of Fear of the Republican Party are invading town hall meetings using tactics that are reminiscent of Third Reich brown shirts. Intimidation, insults and threats are the main tactics that they are using in trying to put a stop to a much needed revamp and reform of our bankrupt health care system.
We have the highest costs of any industrialized nation when delivering health care to our citizens.
France, England, Canada and Cuba have excellent health care systems. The reason for that is that they have governments that truly care about the wellbeing of its citizens.
In the U.S., the barons of capitalism say every day: “Let them eat cake.” They could care less whether you live or die, as long as they are making tons of money off you.
