Steyn: the national treasure

Steyn nails the problem with Obama care, again.

Great point about the difference between life expectancy at birth and life expectancy calculated from other points in the life span.  Why is our life-expectancy so low if we spend so much?  Well, for one thing, we have high infant mortality rate that has little to do with medical care.  Moreover, if you measure life expectancy from higher ages we start moving ahead till we have left pretty much everyone but the Singaporeans behind.  And the Singaporeans have private health savings accounts--crazy right wing nutters.
