The United States is ranked last among other developed nations for quality of healthcare.
In spite of that, Americans pay more for their medical costs than other developed nations.
Employers pay for (on average) 75% of their employee's medical costs.
The average cost of a hospital stay for a heart attack is over $26,000.
The American healthcare industry was worth $24.7 billion dollars in 1960. That number has since climbed to a staggering $3.504 trillion.
There are only 2.6 doctors for every thousand patients in the US.
I believe healthcare should be affordable for all Americans, but do not believe the Government should be the nation’s sole healthcare provider. We must continue to pursue healthcare solutions that allow individuals more choice, and more access to affordable treatment.
