Random Statistics

November 16, 2012

According to the OECD, in 2010 governments in the US spent about $4,000 per person on health care.  This compares favorably with Canada (just over $3,000) and the UK (Britain which spent just under $3,000 per person.   The embarrassing part is that both Canada and the UK provided health care to everyone while the US governments provided healthcare to only about 55% of the people, despite spending a lot more.  Wouldn’t the first step be for US governments to first cover everyone with the money they’re already spending?

June 2012: 80,000 new private jobs were created but 85,000 new people were added to the Social Security Disability program.  That doesn’t sound like a plan with much of a future.
