Could we stop using the term "Yank" to describe all Americans? Yankees are from a very specific part of the country.

Ask anyone in the world what a Yankee is, and they'll tell you it`s an American.

Ask an American what a Yankee is, and they`ll tell you it`s someone from the north.

Ask a northerner what a Yankee is, and they`ll tell you it`s someone from the northeast.

Ask a northeasterner what a Yankee is, and they`ll tell you it`s someone from New England.

Ask a New Englander what a Yankee is, and they`ll tell you it`s someone from Connecticut.

Ask someone from Connecticut what a Yankee is, and they`ll tell you it`s someone who eats pie for breakfast.

For all the claims of how cheap single payer healthcare is, does anyone else realize that they DOMINATE the high end of the cost/capita scale?

When I look at the chart, it looks like 3rd party payer (including single payer) is the most expensive healthcare in the world.

People always want to bad mouth our health care system. I have a quick story as to why I think it's fine.
My wife had surgery a few years back for a tracheal stenosis. She was talking to a few people online about what she should expect from the surgery. There was a guy from India having the same exact surgery as her. She had her surgery done and there was a 6" incision in her throat. A couple years later she has no real recognizable scar. The man from India had an incision from ear to ear and all the way down his chest. He has a huge gnarly scar. Moral of the story...All the good doctors in the world come to America because they can charge an arm and a leg. The surgery cost more than our house, but it was covered so no money out of pocket.

Its not like we say that all people from France are Parisians. (And yes, while I realize that there is a scaling issue there, I'd say the scope is almost equatable.)
