Life Expectancy: the U.S. falls further behind

If government-run health care systems are inferior why do their beneficiaries live longer than Americans?  Hints: it's not smoking (Europeans smoke more).  It is the American theme that "the government governs best which governs least."  It is anti-tax sentiment - rather than community-mindedness.  That kind of distorted "don't tread on me" thinking fuels efforts to obstruct the ACA, and refusal to accept the expansion of Medicaid by GOP governors. - gwc
