WASHINGTON ? If the global economy were a 100-yard dash, the U.S. would start 23 yards behind its closest competitors because of health care that costs too much and delivers too little, a business group says in a report to be released Thursday.
The report from the Business Roundtable, which represents CEOs of major companies, says America's health care system has become a liability in a global economy.

Nice of them to acknowledge that fact. D'ya freakin' think?

Too bad the "government-funded health coverage for low-income people" will probably be the same dehumanizing bureaucratic mess it's always been.
