September 14, 2009 - We're Number 37

My friend and fellow pastor Rob Elder shared this video on Facebook. Some guy's written this satirical ditty reporting that the World Health Organization has ranked the United States #37 out of all the world's nations in providing health care to its citizens:

From the WHO's press release on the subject:

"The U.S. health system spends a higher portion of its gross domestic product than any other country but ranks 37 out of 191 countries according to its performance, the report finds. The United Kingdom, which spends just six percent of GDP on health services, ranks 18th. Several small countries – San Marino, Andorra, Malta and Singapore are rated close behind second-placed Italy."

We can do better.

Yes, we can.
