So You Think Socialized Medicine Works?

Paul Hsieh has posted a graph that depicts the stark realities of the differences between the generally free-ish health care market of the U.S. and the countries with flat-out socialized medicine.

As bad as it is here with Medicare and a looming attempt to kill off private insurance, this graph shows that if you have diabetes or breast cancer, the U.S. is still the place to live. (for now... insert ominous minor chord here)
The MRI stats also corroborate what my Canadian neighbor had to say on the topic.
