British vs US health Care

There’s a gap between life expectancy for low-income people and for rich people, which, while attributable to a number of factors, such as overall diet, stress, and environment, can also be attributed to a lack of affordable, accessible, and quality health care.”

“Low-income people face higher rates of disease, including heart disease and  depression. Low-income Americans, statistically, die younger—and while affordable health care wouldn’t solve that structural problem entirely, it would be a huge start.”

Medicynical note: With BREXIT we’ll get to see if the British electorate are smarter than the American. A low bar but in the face of US rightist propaganda, a docile Tory party and a Trump-clone liar as Prime Minister, anything can happen.
