Political will – Healthcare

I came across the following Chart in the January 2010 edition of National Geographic showing US healthcare spending per capita relative to other countries – it also shows the implications for life expectancy. While the daily US news flow continues  to highlight the political difficulties in achieving healthcare spending reform, the attached chart is a reminder of why it is required.

I have been impressed with the frankness and perspective of US Budget Office Director Peter Orszag on these issues but ultimately it is about political will from elected representatives.
