Health Reform: Lessons On What Not To Do

18 Aug

For some time now, we’ve been hearing that when it comes to the U.S. health care system, the status quo is not a good option. Still, there seem to be plenty of people who are quite vocal in their support of the status quo over the currently proposed health reform.

Foreign Policy magazine, however, gives everyone a reason to stop supporting the status quo. On a short list of countries the United States should look to for examples of what not to do when it comes to implementing health reform, we find ourselves in some pretty unpleasant company.

For all of the outrage over socialized medicine and big government, it is worth noting that the American status quo on health care ranks right up there with Russia, China, and Turkmenistan on the worst systems list. Yep, that’s right. The United States is #4.
