    Please link to the news stories from credible sources showing mass support in the other first world nations for switching to a US style health care system.

    Why should I link what I did not claim? Do you have a reading problem?

    So they are endless, but you can't provide links to them?

    It works.
    How can America tap into economic growth while outsourcing more jobs from American industries?

    You know of course that Manufacturing isn't the only industry being outsourced.

    Pssst: read the OP. You're factually wrong. But that never stopped a conservative from indulging in market evangelism.

    Pay for service is a relic of the past. It can't survive for well know reasons involving market flaws in the health care (price inelasticity and imbalance in information). But conservative will continue to deny reality and make themselves even more irrelevant to real America.

    Actually the US remains the top manufacturer in the world. But leaving that aside, the problem of outsourcing is somewhat easily solved: ban it or tax it.

    However, this isn't relevant to GDP growth, which happens due to productivity gains and the inherent advantages of the American economy (if not eviscerated by failed conservative policies).

    When did paying for a service become a "relic if the past"? Someone pays for everything in one way or another..

    Yeah, reading your posts create a problem: cognitive dissonance as you make one couterfactual claim after the next. In public health metrics our system is failing. It's failing for known economic reasons. Your bizarrely unfactual posts simply won't change that, but they will prove you're a conserative.

    You don't understand the term apparently. Nothing new here.

    Deaths from all causes does not equate with how well a nation's health system is run.

    American healthcare workers receive more education than any others in the world (from what I see). Healthcare is expensive, but the quality and innovation is higher in America.
