jerryab spreads the myth:"
That has been known for many years. OECD 2007 is one place you obviously never visted. It details healthcare costs. US quality of care = #37. US cost of care = #1 (highest). That is of the ~40 OECD industrialized countries. France quality of care = #1. Cost of care = ~ HALF of US cost (that is AFTER all adjustments--so comparing apples to apples). S"

no way

The Frenchies pay 46% of their income in taxes. One of the highest burdens in the entire world.

Then they get hit with $8 or $9gal gasoline and diesel.

Then uncompetitive shops and no shopping on the internet for discount goods. It's a major CRIME to sell below 'retail price' on anything from books to clothing. It's all union and guild driven inefficient work rules and restriction of business.

You pay full price for everything, and another 20% Value Added Tax on top of that.

That 'list' gave more points to 'fairness' that it did to actual medical care. They count their 'live births' differently and skew the statistics.

You'll live longer in the US and won't be pigeon cooped in a teeny apartment somewhere crammed in with millions of others who are crammed in .....and can't afford a car...... or even meals out.

Sorry, I don't see millions of immigrants flooding into France other than the islam--ohs who will take over the country within 40 years. With 8 kids per family, within 2 generations the muslims will outnumber the French. They it is really 'toast' for them.
Wow, his WHO study bs post gets debunked by this:

and he still tries to spread the lie, shows me that he's more interested in propaganda. Not surprised, time to stop reading his garbage, and responding to his garbage.
