A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the UN

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 .
