Feels like an oxymoron writing the heading after reading this:

San Diego Union-Tribune: Americans .. spend about twice per person what people in other developed countries spend for healthcare yet have less to show for it.

Despite the $3.5 trillion we shell out annually on medical treatment, Americans have a shorter life expectancy and higher rates of infant mortality than our economic peers — two key measures of healthcare efficacy.

Taking a look at Scripps currently - this story came up - it's an interesting article - outlines institutionalized rorting. I know Dan has said before the US health system is a mess - this helps explain one aspect at least.
