By CHAD TERHUNE Los Angeles Times
LOS ANGELES • Despite having the costliest care, the United States ranks last among 11 industrialized countries on health care quality and access, according to a new report.
The analysis by the Commonwealth Fund published Monday ranked the United Kingdom first overall, even though its per-capita health spending is less than half that of the U.S.
The other top-ranked countries were Switzerland and Sweden. France and Canada were just above the U.S. at the bottom of the rankings.
Forty-percent of U.S. adults who had visited the emergency room said they could have been treated by a regular doctor if one had been available.

The GOP didn't technically lie. They just are not informed, well-educated science and math majors. They spent too much time studying Bible. And they never developed thinking skills. They are just dumb motherfucks who believe what they are told by thier handlers, you know, the wealthy people that give money.
