Health in the USA

A couple of reports have come out recently that reflect badly on the state of health in the United States. First there was the report placing the US next to last among industrialized nations in child welfare. Now there is a report stating that the US health care system is getting worse. (It may not even cost all that much to fix it.) Add to that the fact that we are way down the list (behind Bosnia and Herzegovina) in life expectancy and it is easy to see where the priorities are in the country. (They ain’t on healthy eating and living longer.) The military industrial complex gets more than its fair share, as do large corporations generally, while the people get the short end of the stick.
