The Questions our Health Care Debate Ignores

Joe Conason, in an article published on Salon entitled “The Questions Our Healthcare Debate Ignores,” poses the questions: "Why does every developed nation except the U.S. have universal healthcare? Why do they pay half as much in medical costs? Why are their infant mortality and longevity statistics superior?"  He goes on to suggest that “if healthcare is a public good and a human right, the domination of private interests must be curtailed.”
