    Interesting!!

    There are actually two messages here. The first is very
    interesting, but the second is absolutely astounding - and explains a lot.

    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 2%
    Canada 6%

    And now for the last statistic:

    National Health Insurance?

    U.S. NO
    England YES
    Canada YES

    Check this last set of statistics!!

    The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked
    in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.
    You know what the private business sector is a real-life business, not a
    government job. Here are the percentages.

    T. Roosevelt.................... 38%

    Taft.................................40%

    Wilson .............................52%

    Harding........................... 49%

    Coolidge......................... 48%

    Hoover........................... 42%

    F. Roosevelt................... 50%

    Truman........................... 50%

    Eisenhower................ .... 57%

    Kennedy......................... 30%

    Johnson.......................... 47%

    Nixon.............................. 53%

    Ford................................ 42%

    Carter............................. 32%

    Reagan........................... 56%

    GH Bush......................... 51%

    Clinton .......................... 39%

    GW Bush........................ 55%

    Obama..................... 8%


    This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration:
    only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

    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?

    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?
