I know too many people from other countries, that have had physical problems, and would have died if they hadn't come to the U.S. for better healthcare. Yes, government run healthcare may be free for all, but not accessible to all. If I need to wait 2 years to get a cast on my broken arm, that's BAD! Even worse, if I have cancer, and have to wait that long = YIKES. I'll be dead before then.
Sure... that's why the US is so far down the list on figures for longevity! The World Health Organization put the US at 33, while Japan is number 1 (2011). The 32 countries where you are more likely to live longer than in the US all, virtually by definition, have a "better healthcare system"!
The country that has the best medical facilities
is the US, and for those who can get it, whether citizens or foreigners, it is great. But the country that spends the most on health care and delivers it to the lowest percentage of the population is the US.
You've fabricated unrealistic scenarios to denigrate countries with better health care systems than ours. We have the national wealth to produce the best doctors, the best hospitals, etc etc to provide the best medical treatment available anywhere in the world! But we also have one of the worst health care systems.
Worse than the figures for longevity are those for infant mortality. The UN ranks the United States as the 50th down the list (Japan is at number 2). Even that does not tell the real horror though. In the wealthiest nation in the world, there are areas where the infant mortality rate is two or more times the national average! No, not just poor regions either; the difference are racial! Native Americans, who are supposed to get "free" medical care from the US Government typically have poor medical facilites. (An example is where I live, on the North Slope of Alaska, which is per capita one of the wealthiest locations in the US, but also is primarily Alaska Native by race and depends entirely on Indian Health Service funded hospital services. The infant mortality rates are not as high as on the average Indian reservation, but they are closer to that than to the national average.)
The point of course is that President Obama and the Democrats in Congress have at least tried very diligently to actually improve the health care delivery system in this country. The Republicans have tried very hard to protect the insurance industry. Guess who donates the most money for polictical campaigns?
