Astounding Facts and Figures!

posted by Donna Calvin

There are actually two messages here.  The 1st points out the incredible benefits of “Universal Healthcare” and is very interesting; the 2nd is absolutely astounding – and explains a lot.

1. A recent “Investor’s Business Daily” article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization. 

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
U.S.                 65%
England          46%
Canada           42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
U.S.                 93%
England          15%
Canada           43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
U.S.                 90%
England          15%
Canada           43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
U.S.                  77%
England           40%
Canada            43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
U.S.                 71
England          14
Canada           18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in “excellent health”:
U..S.                            12%
England                       02%
Canada                        06%



Check this last set of statistics!!

 

 

 


2. The percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.
Here are the percentages.
T. Roosevelt……………..  38%
Taft…………………………. 40%
Wilson …………………….. 52%
Harding……………………. 49%
Coolidge………………….. 48%
Hoover ……………………. 42%
F. Roosevelt……………… 50%
Truman……………………. 50%
Johnson…………………… 47%
Nixon………………………. 53%
Ford………………………… 42%
Carter………………………  32%
Reagan……………………..56%
GH Bush…………………..  51%
Clinton ……………………. 39%
GW Bush………………….  55%

And the winner is:

Obama………………. 08%


This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration: only 8% of them have ever worked in a job not supported by tax money!

That’s right!  Only eight percent—the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!
And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business?
They know what’s best for GM, Chrysler, Wall Street, and you and me? 

How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one?

Or about jobs when he has never really had one?  And when it’s the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?  They’ve spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers.” They should have been in an employment line.
 

We’ll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media.

 

 

 

“One of the penalties of not participating in politics is that you will be governed by your inferiors.” Plato

Where did these facts come from? Have you ever met an old person not complaining about their health?
