Lazy man's post (health care)

Finally - healthcare is bubbling up in the news.
Here are a couple of my past contributions:
Public Service Announcement: U.S. Health Care system
Based on OECD ("Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development") statistics, the report reveals that the U.S. spends more per capita ($6102) than any other of the 30 member countries; more on health care as percentage of GDP (15.3%) than any other of the 30 member countries...
YET: ranks near the bottom on several "outcome" measures, including life-expectancy (22nd of 30), and infant-mortality (28th of 30).

Alone... why???
We are the only developed country in the world without universal health coverage.
... and, NO: I don't want to read any headlines along the lines of "White House caves on public option"!
