  •  I notice that MA is 2nd (8+ / 0-)

    Looks like RomneyCare works, to an extent.  

    While Vermont's is #1, and such a system would be best for the whole country, #2 is not bad, either.

    •  And New Hampshire is third (0+ / 0-)

      So New Hampshire #3 (with barely any regulations) behind MA #2 (Like the feds but different) and Vermont #1 (nearly universal) basically allows anyone to say that whatever approach you use it doesn't matter. It has to do with lifestyle of the people, race, money and ethnic and cultural factors. Violent crime was one of the stats, along with environmental quality, education, and vaccinations. These all work together in complicated ways to give you the final number. Nevada seems strangely low due to crime (thank you gambling). Unfortunately trying to put this out there will just give us conservatives saying things like..."well It's because crime is bad in Texas (read: because of Poor immigrants/blacks/Native People)" or that it is because Air quality is bad in California due to Mother Nature or Jerry Brown or whatnot. To me the general trend is clear but there is too much in those stats to make it a great support for Universal Healthcare.  However, i am a proponent. Just playing devils advocate here.
