Murder by spreadsheet
One the left, per capita spending. On the right, lifespan. For us, the left side of the chart shows how much money the murderers in the health insurance industry make by successfully denying us care. On the right, the chart shows how these murderers have shortened our lives.
I hadn't seen Sicko until recently, when a friend lent me the DVD. "Murderers" isn't a rhetorical exaggeration. Watch the movie: It's the plain and simple truth. Too bad that the murderers were able to buy off both parties, the press, and the "progressive" access bloggers with all the money they stole. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...
NOTE Via Baseline Scenario.
UPDATE Hey, whaddaya know. All the thick lines slant up. Look at the legend, and that shows you that more doctors visits lead, on the average, to longer lives. Guess that makes those clowns doing the Dartmouth Study murderers too. Quelle surprise.
