Statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization

A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization:

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

U.S.             65%

England       46%

Canada        42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who has received  treatment within six months:

U.S.             93%

England       15%

Canada        43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it  within six months:

U.S.             90%

England       15%

Canada        43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:

U.S.             77%

England       40%

Canada        43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:

U.S.              71

England       14

Canada        18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":

U.S.             12%

I don't know about you, but I don't want "Universal Healthcare" comparable to     England or  Canada .


Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, "Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age."  I say, SHIP hIm TO  CANADA OR  ENGLAND !

He is "elderly" himself, but be sure to remember his health insurance is different from yours as Congress has their own high-end coverage!  He will never have to learn to accept "inconveniences of old age"!!!

AND THE WINNER IS VERY INTERESTING!

The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is... a real life business, not a government job. Here are the percentages. 
 

T. Roosevelt........  
38%

Taft....................40%

Wilson  ..................
  52%

Harding..................49%

Coolidge..............  48%

Hoover................. 42%

F. Roosevelt.........  50%

Truman..................50%

Eisenhower...........  57%

Kennedy..............  
30%

Johnson.................47%

Nixon...................  53%

Ford..................... 42%

Carter..................  
32%

Reagan...................56%

GH Bush................51%

Clinton................. 
39%

GW Bush...............55%  

And the winner  of the Chicken Dinner is:


Obama................ 8%!!!


Yep! That's right! Only Eight Percent!!! .. the least by far of the last 19 presidents!! And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business? They know what's best for GM...Chrysler...Wall Street...and you and me?  

How can the president of a major nation and society
 ... the one with the most successful economic system in world history (until now) ... stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?... or about jobs when he has never really had one?!?  And neither have 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers!
