The U.S. Spends $3 Trillion on health care annually but has lowest life expectancy

Posted on: March 27, 2017

Here is an interesting statistic. The United States spends $3 Trillion annually on health care, more than 10 other wealthy nations, but has the lowest life expectancy and highest infant mortality rate of the 10 wealthy nations: http://fingfx.thomsonreuters.com/gfx/rngs/USA-OBAMACARE/010040BL0Q1/index.html

If you look at the numbers, it would appear that both Italy and Spain are doing something right. Both are in the top five for longevity but their costs are way down compared to other countries with Italy in tenth place for cost and Spain in eleventh.
