The chart of the day... from Ezra Klein's blog in the Washington Post. I know it's hard to read, but that's the United States on the far left, which spends more on health care than any other developed nation. Way more.

To give you an example, the U. S. spends almost twice as much as France (eleventh from the left), a system which most experts would say delivers better outcomes than ours.

And that illustrates one of the most basic reasons for health care reform in America: we're spending way too much for the quality of care we receive.
