Oh, and doesn't Broun have, ahem, publicly funded healthcare of his own?
Statistically, both Canada and the U.K. have longer lifespans and lower infant mortality rates than ours. To drive the point home still further, Canada's statistics used to be nearly identical to ours, until they went to a single payer universal health care system.
I'm not sure what Broun is complaining about really; what most health care advocates want is single payer, and that's not on the table here. Speaking of tables, you can go to Unicef's website and create your own table comparing countries, life expectancies, infant mortality rates, and so forth. See below for statistics as of 2007.
Cuba, which most would consider a third world country, has a better infant mortality rate than ours! They have the same life expectancy as we do! And why? They have universal health care.
Meanwhile, Canada and the U.K. far outstrip us in either category. So, if Broun really wants to prevent death, he should embrace, not eschew, universal health care. Oh, and for those on the right who worry about spending, isn't human life priceless?
