Health Care Cost

From Matt Phillips at Quartz:

What’s amazing, is that with their system, Canada offers universal health care for the same % of GDP that the US covers only those on Medicare and Medicaid! Well, that must mean that health outcomes are horrible in Canada right?

Via Sarah Kliff, it turns out that Canadian health care actually offers better outcomes than the US.

Lot of reasons for the differences in the systems; more to come on that soon.
