yes, and Single payer kills you..

you are less likely to survive in a single payer system than in the US system

Which do you value more MONEY or LIFE.

Correlation does not imply causation.

Needless to say, TNV's study presents doctored data.

The only correlation they are suggesting is worse results in poorer countries. Big surprise.

The kicker is they are only studying cancers that were treated at stage one. So if you couldn't afford a doctor and just ignored your symptoms till your cancer hit stage two or higher, you aren't part of this study.

That in itself blows that post well into fictionland.

Sure, Switzerland on the bottom of the list surely must be poorer than Portugal.
