HEALTH CARE COSTS AS WE KNOW IT TODAY CAN NOT BE SUSTAINED
U.S. spends more per capita than any other country! $8,160 for every man, woman and child. “Healthcare accounted for 17.3% of the economy (GDP) in 2009. The increase in healthcare spending, from $2,300,000,000,000 ($2.34 trillion) in 2008 to $2,470,000,000,000 ($2.47 trillion) in 2009.” Posted by Kate Pickert Thursday, February 4, 2010 at 11:36 am.
Despite the high cost of the U.S. healthcare system, the United Sates has the highest infant mortality rate among industrialized nations; the life expectance is the lowest at the average age of 77 years of age. The U.S. performs five times more MRIs than any country except Japan, where the majority of MRIs are manufactured. Health care costs as we know it today cannot be sustained.
