"USA's Healthcare system is the best in the world!" I hear that a lot from conservatives (mostly those on the take from insurers) and people who repeat that claim, despite the W.H.O.'s report that we rank 37th although we pay the most. I heard a great question from a caller on talk radio this morning, and thought I'd bring it up for discussion here. Lets assume for sake of argument that we DO have the #1 system. If we have the best system in the world, who on Earth is attempting to copy it.... ?
