HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Compares US Health Care to a ‘Developing Country”


Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius compared the healthcare system in the United States to that of a “developing nation”. Really Kathleen, really? Her latest ridiculous comparison was done as a defence to prevent the repeal of Obamacare. Are you serious, I would dare say that Obamacare

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says patient outcomes in the United States are like those in “a developing country” – and that they’ll stay that way if the health care reform law is repealed.

“The delivery system changes are what will affect underlying costs, and that impacts everybody,” Sebelius said Thursday. “We pay 2 1/2 times what anybody else pays in the world, and our care outcomes look like we’re in a developing country.”

The United States actually ranks well above developing countries on multiple health indicators, coming in right above the European Union on infant mortality and slightly below Portugal on life expectancy, according to the CIA World Factbook.

As pointed out by Weasel Zippers, even the article by the leftist Politico makes the point that her assertions are blatantly false. What the Obama minions will say to defend Obama’s government take over of health care knowing that it is bad for America.

      We need to vote Obummer out of office in 2012 if for no other reason to get rid of idiot losers like Sebelius. This woman is a complete moron.

      This woman lives in LaLa land. She is just typical of those that make up the Obama administration.

      It is amazing how like her boss that she and others in the administration are.

      I keep getting the eerie feeling that all this apparent
      stupidity and ineptness we see in the ‘Administration’
      is choreographed rather than accidental. Perhaps someone
      like Cass Sunstein might have an inkling about that?
