Why does lavish health spending in the US produce so little in the way of results?
The United States pays far more than any other country in healthcare yet Americans live shorter lives. Why is that?
The article indicates that the costs are so high for Americans, as much as 5 times the costs per person than other countries, that most people are not receiving the care they need as they can’t afford it.
So I guess “death panels” do exist, except that they exist in the United States, not elsewhere.

So the US offers the “best healthcare in the world”, but what good is it if you can’t afford it?
