In other cost of health care news:
Flat earth Republicant leaders like Mitch – I'm talking as slow and as boringly as I can – McConnell and John – I'm sobbing like a freak – Boehner like to repeat the Republicant mantra about the US health care system being the best health care system in the world.
Boehner says that whenever he brings another bill to the floor of the House to repeal Obama Care (those bills which have no chance of going anywhere, and now numbering somewhere around 30, have cost the US taxpayers over $3 million).
McConnell likes to say it whenever he's not being caught on tape discussing Ashley Judd's mental health.
Of course, the US doesn't have the best health care system in the world but it does have the most expensive.
In the US a typical stay in the hospital for a normal baby delivery averages $9800, in the UK it's $2600 and in France it costs $3500.
In the US a C-section will set somebody back $15000, England = $4400; France = $6400.
Need a bit of bypass work on the ticker. The US bill will average around $73000. In England it's a paltry $14,000. France averages about $23,000.
Daily cost to stay in a US hospital = $4300. France = $853. Australia is the second most expensive after the US. Kangarooville = $1500, about a third.
The US spends 18% of GDP on health care. England = 10%, France = 12%.
The next time you hear Republicants Mitch – I'm talking as slow and as boringly as I can – McConnell or John – I'm sobbing like a freak – Boehner repeat the tired old Republicant mantra about the US health care system – being the best health care system in the world – tell them it damned well better be since it’s THE MOST EXPENSIVE IN THE WORLD. BY FAR. Then tell them to shut up.
