interesting to note that in private health insurance 15% of income is for administrative purposes, whereas with the US Medicare and Veterans Admin. it is only 2%
also interesting to note that large US corporations are starting to push for some kind of govt. medical care - since its much more difficult to compete with foreign companies that dont have to contribute to health insurance costs for their workers..
for instance it costs CHrysler something like a $1000 less per car
to produce the same vehicle in Canada than the US.
