Interesting Statistics

England and Canada have national health care



A recent “Investor’s Business Daily” article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the 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

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in “excellent health”:

U.S.               12%

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want “Universal Healthcare” comparable to England or Canada.

Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, “Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age.”


He is “elderly” himself but be sure to remember his health insurance is different from

yours as Congress has its own high-end coverage!  He will never have to learn to accept “inconveniences”!


The percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.  You know what?  The private business sector is a real life business, not agovernment job.  Here are the percentages.

T. Roosevelt          38%

Taft                        40%

Wilson                  52%

Harding                 49%

Coolidge               48%

Hoover                  42%

F Roosevelt          50%

Truman                 50%

Eisenhower          57%

Kennedy               30%

Johnson                47%

Nixon                   53%

Ford                     42%

Carter                   32%

Reagan                 56%

GH Bush              51%

Clinton                 39%

GW Bush              55%

And the winner of the Chicken Dinner is:

Obama                   8%


This alone can explain the incompetence of this administration!

Yep!  That’s right!  Only Eight Percent! The least by far of the last 19 presidents!!  And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business?  They know what’s best for GM, Chrysler, Wall Street and you and me?

How can the president of a major nation and society the one with the most successful economic system in world history stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one?  Or about jobs when he has never really had one?  And neither have 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers!  They’ve spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers” when they should have been in an employment line.


Pass this on because we will NEVER see it in the main street media!
