1. Our healthcare costs are nearly double every other developed country with much worse outcomes

The United States healthcare system is the most expensive in the world, but when it comes to health outcomes, it performs worse than 11 other similar industrialized nations, according to a new report released today by the Commonwealth Fund.

The nonprofit examined the health systems of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, and it found that the U.S. was last or near-last in measures of health access, efficiency, and equity.

Simple solution--adopt the most efficient and effective practices of those other systems and claim we invented it! It would save trillions over the next decade.
