    Why America

    PopJolly May 23, 2011 Featured

    The United States has fallen behind other nations, failing to provide affordable health care to its citizens. Americans spend $477 billion a year MORE on health care than other advanced countries. So why do we pay so much compared to other wealthy nations? This infographic is part two in a two part series which dissects the state of our health care system and presents some alarming numbers.

    I've gotta think in part it's due to the education requirements as well. I've heard that in South America, for example, that it's a 4 year degree to be a doctor.
    Here you have a bachelors degree for 4 years + medical school which is another 4 years + residency requirements which are at least a year = 9 years before you can do anything on your own.

    Insurance is another thing that just drives up the cost. Cut out the administrative middleman!
