Re: “Public Option for Health Insurance: It's On the Way

Besides the people who still cling to the "America has the best health care in the world" lie, my second favorite is the people who say that those without health insurance who can't pay can go to the emergency room.

And just who do they think eventually DOES pay for that?

But back to the "best in the world" fantasy: we pay twice as much as other developed countries per capita per year for health care, have ridiculously unimpressive longevity and infant mortality, and the very states where opposition to health care reform is the loudest are the worst in terms of health care quality and accessibility. The Central Intelligence Agency World Factbook, The Commonwealth Fund, and United Health Foundation's "America's Health Rankings" attest to what I've just said.

But as long as the United Health and Wellpoint CEOs are among the highest paid executives in the country, those who perpetuate the lie will continue to do so. And millions of Americans will go on thinking, "Hey, they must be doing something right. No socialism for me!" It'd be funny were it not so sad.
