Costly and of Low Quality – US Health Care System Compared (Yet Again)

Via The Grumpy Sociologist, the Commonwealth Fund has yet another comparative study showing that the US health care system is more costly and less effective than that of other high income countries (heck, France was not even in the set of compared countries this time).

How many studies will it ever take to get significant change? There is no rationale for maintaining a costly and ineffective system beyond preserving corporate interests and keeping intact the ideology that the US can never learn anything from other countries because that would mean the US is not number one in everything.

So, this system persists, sustained by lies and ideologies.
