So Rush Limbaugh thinks there is nothing wrong with the American Health Care system (Limbaugh says heart health care system OK, Boston Globe, Saturday, January 2, 2010: A4). He is of course absolutely right; as long as you are rich.
In fact America has two health care systems: one for the rich and middle class; the other for the poor -- and more of us are slipping out of the middle class every day.
It is this second, health care for the poor, system that gives us our appalling standing in the international public health statistics.
We need reform, preferably with a public option now. As a triple UK/Canadian/US citizen, I am not afraid of a public option or even a single payer system.
