This comment by my cousin made me laugh, but I became solemn over these staggering statistics.  She said, and I quote:  “Of course you know, Christmas Eve, our present from our ELECTED OFFICIALS will be a ROYAL SCREWING.  Been bent over so long now I doubt I will ever be able to stand straight again.”
I agree with her.  To make matters worse, our government is kissing us off after they screw us.  Now for the staggering statistics…

A recent “Investor’s Business Daily” article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:                             U.S.             65%
England       46%
Canada       42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:

U.S.             93%
England       15%
Canada        43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:

U.S.             90%
England       15%
Canada       43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:

U.S.             77%
England       40%
Canada       43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:                             U.S.             71
England       14
Canada       18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in “excellent health”:

U.S.            12%
England        2%
Canada        6%

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want “Universal Healthcare” comparable to England or Canada.

Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, “Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age..”

SHIP HIS A** TO CANADA OR ENGLAND!
