UNITED STATES: 15.9 pct of GDP, $6,657 per capita

U.S. health care spending is expected to increase at similar levels for the next decade reaching $4.3 TRILLION in 2017, or 20 percent of GDP.1

Health care spending is 4.3 times the amount spent on national defense.3

The United States spends more on health care per capita than other industrialized nations but does not receive more services, according to a study published on Tuesday in the July/August issue of... Health Affairs, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Another example of our high costs of care is clearly seen in the following illustration. Earlier this month Seaver-Davis, a family mediator and teacher, traveled halfway across the world from Greensboro to Bangalore, where Wockhardts surgeons removed the loose implants from a previous surgery in his knee and replaced them with fresh implants.

The surgery cost $11,000, a bargain-basement price that was a quarter of what hospitals in North Carolina were quoting. If more people knew about the quality of medical care here, American hospitals would go out of business, said Seaver-Davis.

1,290Airfare (Round trip 2 wks in advance, may vary)
2,380Hotel (2 weeks, 4-5 stars, 170 per night)
14,67033.3% of U.S. Hospital Costs or 1/3 less of cost in U.S.

What is being pushed at this time, in this country, is health coverage reform when it ought to be health care reform. This industry is profiting from our own fear and greed. And now, they are looking to continue the coverage based system by having the government overtime swallow up the private coverage based institutions so the other participants such as the big pharmacuticals can continue to charge what few individuals can afford to pay.

The biggest year of the boom was 1957, when 4.3 million boomers were born. Why it took over 10 years for so many post-World War II families to get going is a matter of speculation. For the 5-year period between 1956 and 1960, inclusive, 21.2 million boomers were born, nearly 1 1/2 times the number born between 1941 and 1945, and the largest for any 5-year period in the 20th century.

These boomers reach 65+ in 2017-2023


By continuing the coverage based system health care participants such as the big pharmacetucals can continue to charge exuberant prices for medication grandma needs. By merging the the coverage based system into the federal govenment over time the private insures can be eliminated while other participants within the health care industry continue to charge what individuals can not pay.

We have allowed this to happen. Due to our own desires that rage within us to get what we have not earned. We are a lotto nation. We gamble it all away for a chance at to save a few dollors even if it means raising the costs on eveyone else.

We do not have to let this industry and its particpants who grandma hostage through a coverage based solution.

America we must repent. We must confess to God our own greed and selfishness. We must accept God's justice system, Jesus Christ crucifed for our sin and the offences of others. We must beleive Jesus unto righteousness, unto partaking of His divine nature though the free gift of the Holy Spirit available to whosoever will. There is no other way to releat to the creator of all things but through His eternal Son who shed His blood for the sins of the whole world.

Let your faith in Him move you by His strength unto righteousness. Let us though His strength retain our power to do good not only over our wealth by not participating in heatlth coverage based solutions but also over the power of our choice regarding our heatlh care.

May God grant us wisdom and understanding that we may know Him.

May God bless us all in the name of His Son Jesus Christ who is the Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
