Universal health care - around the world

The screenshot above is a map (via theatlantic.com) of countries around the world that provide universal health care. The green countries are those that provide universal health care. Notice, despite today's upholding of the Affordable Care Act, which large, developed country is not among those that provide it? (Here's another hint: it's in North America.) Here's a link to Max Fisher's column arguing that, except for the US, the countries that don't provide universal health care are developing nations.

It's a really clear map. Costa Rica, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Cuba and Sri Lanka are all green . . . but we're not.

And here are some links to charts showing how inefficient our health care spending is and an earlier post about how much we actually spend on health care.
