I just thought that I would post this to help me on Yahoo answers when answering questions about healthcare. The facts connect you to links about them. Feel free to e-mail me on Yahoo answers if you have a query about them, or if you feel that they are wrong.
FACT - Insurance companies in the USA admit to pushing up prices, buying politicians and not paying out claims when they should
FACT - PER PERSON the USA spends more on healthcare than any other nation on the planet
FACT - Obama debated his plans before the election for healthcare
FACT - the chance of a child under five of dying in the USA is greater than industrialised nations with universal healthcoverage
FACT - Obama was elected by the American people to bring in change
FACT - Obama wants to stop insurance companies from screwing the American people
FACT - The reforms Obama wants work in the Netherlands and in Switzerland
Sorry of this causes offence to some. That is not the intent and I am always open to debate.
