When it comes to Healthcare in the United States, I believe the argument has less to do with the quality of care than it has to do with how to pay for it. If you truly want to compare the quality of care, you need to look at hospital survival rates, not life expectancy. Countries, such as Great Britain have a higher life expectancy because they don’t have the same level of gang and gun violence that we have in the States. These young deaths quickly hack away at life expectancy.
I am a technology nut: I’ve literally spent my entire life around computers, having learned to read at the age of 4 operating a Commodore 64. Or so the story goes from my mother. Yet, I seem to be slow in adopting trends. I didn’t even bother to activate texting on my smartphone until about three years ago. I figured: it’s a cell phone; you pay for the freedom to call and talk at any time. What’s the point? Yes, I’ve learned the error of my ways.
