This is a classic example of the liberal bias that elitist things like “statistics” and “numbers” can have. This chart was posted yesterday on a leftist website. This website weirdly implies that this chart is evidence that the American healthcare system delivers inferior quality care that is more expensive than in other places in the world.
That is obviously ridiculous, since America is the best, period. Any chart that implies otherwise is clearly wrong.
But even more ridiculous is this: the website even provides several proofs that this chart is wrong, but somehow poo-poos them and discounts them. Here are some examples of the proofs:
Proof #1: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell once said about America’s health care system: ” It is already the finest health care system in the world!”
Proof #2: House Speaker John Boehner once said that we have: “the best health care delivery system in the world.”
Proof #3: Governor Rick Perry once said: “We’ve got some of the finest health care in the world.”
Proof #4: Sean Hannity constantly said that we have: “a health care system that is the envy of the world.”
And so on.
LOOK AT ALL OF THAT PROOF!!! What more proof could you possibly need???
To any good conservative American, this is obviously enough evidence that the chart is wrong and that America is truly NUMBER ONE in terms of healthcare, freedom, liberty, and other things that nobody knows how to measure properly.
There is really only one conclusion that can be reached.
When liberal “facts” seem to contradict conservative values… well know where the fault really lies…
The facts have been infected by the liberal bias!!!!!
