LOL talk about being inaccurate and muddying the waters. What exactly does owning less cars have to do with health? And less disposable income.. what... on earth does that have to do with it.. and I am not even sure that is correct. Prove it.Not factoring in that less people in the UK own vehicles or have less disposable income due to tax and regulate,among(which can lead to premature deaths among the reckless and unfortunate) other lifestyle factors and the numbers still only skew up by what amounts to a little over a year. Nice oops yourself.
So basically... wups what on earth does this have to do with anything!?
Eh? Seriously where do you get this crap. What on earth does this have to do with the statistic? Are you blaming the blacks or something? It is hardly an irrelevant statistic. It shows how many children die in a country before they are 5. Now this can be accidents or it can be disease. Are you claiming that US parents are so bad at parenting that they kill their children more than other nations?Which is an irrelavent statistic considering the US is not a homogenous population with different laws and ways of living. Another Pete wups.
Actually that is common place in ALL countries.. so that is evened out! Most countries have limits on enrolment into medical schools, including the UK.The U.S. has a doctor shortage due to legally limited doctor enrollment by federal law in which the AMA lobbied for in the early part of the 1900's, guess your little WHO propoganda piece didn't give you that piece of info did it?
yes you guys do have a few stats you are better at. So that is what.. 4 out of how many hundred? Got any more.. Yes I know about the cancer statistics.And more sanitation problems coupled with longer wait times, worse satisfaction scores, and a much higher critical care mortality rate. To quote you wups.
And sanitation problems are often because that the cleaning has been outsourced to private companies. Our standards are as good as American standards when it comes to sanitation, but because of the gutting of the NHS, hospitals have been forced to privatize the cleaning of hospitals, and that has meant that the cleaning has suffered. It happened in Denmark as well.
As for "satisfaction scores", it is not exactly a statistic that is comparable. People might not be satisfied enough with the NHS, but if you ask them if it should be privatised and broken up then you would find that a huge majority would say no. Hell France and Spain have some of the best healthcare systems in the world, and the population are never satisfied with them and yet they would never ever get rid of them.
As for waiting lists.. you do know they exist in your oh so perfect system right? Plus it is easy to cut waiting lists if you dont cover more than 60% of your population and the rest just die at home or in emergency rooms when it is too late...
OH.. I know the US beats most on cancer statistics, but what else? And even here, it is only statistics on those that are treated.. there are no statistics on those not treated because they cant afford going to the doctor... they dont show up in the official cancer statistics.Not even close.
I agree, but in the US case you are paying much much more for worse than most European countries on average..... then again if you are willing to pay for liver transplants for 70+ year odl alcoholic multi millionaire instead using the liver on someone who can contribute to society, then by all means go ahead.I'd rather pay more for better than less for crap.
On the UK unemployment .. prove it.. and let me remind you the official US unemployment figures are not reliable as people can fall out of the statistics after a certain time.. not to mention it is a freaking poll... only real unemployment statistics even get close.LOL, you can't even come close to claiming that. The UK has more unemployment historically and Europe is the handout capital of the free world. What was that word you used again? Oh yeah........wups.
As for the "handout capital of the free world".. 30+ years ago sure, now.. not so much. Your sense of reality about Europe seems stuck in the 1960s and 1970s. Europe as a whole, has over the last 30 years changed very much on almost every level.
