Good BBC graphics on social welfare, comparing US with other countries

I'm afraid I can't provide a direct link. It's on the home page right now





These statistics are worth considering. There are five in total

5. Gentlemen, what we see here is the disastrous results of attempting

7. From the UK, of course...
...You don't expect the AmeriKKKan "news" media to divulge such information, do you? That'd make george bu$h look bad. Can't have that. Gotta keep the paper Weasel propped up with propaganda. Everything's Hunky Dory! It's perfect! There are no poor uninsured people HERE! Nothing to see, move along...

An inspired and industrious person could come up with many more graphics highlighting the various

Thank you for posting this,Michael_UK!

15. Health care /costs/coverage should be the number one domestic issue
