This is not a health care system to be proud of:

Sick and in pain, 78-year old surf rocker legend Dick Dale must play on because if he doesn’t? He won’t be able to afford the medicine that allows him to live with a host of health issues.

C’mon. Aren’t we supposed to be better than this?

The U.S. health system is lacking

The 34-nation Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has released a report that says, in part, that Americans pay more than $7,900 per person for healthcare each year — two and a half times more than the average OECD country — but still die earlier than their peers in the industrialized world.

You can read the report here. You can read how the U.S. fared here.
