Health Care Debate "Myths"

Economist Greg Mankiw responds to three myths in our current health care debate:

STATEMENT 1 The United States has lower life expectancy and higher infant mortality than Canada, which has national health insurance.

STATEMENT 2 Some 47 million Americans do not have health insurance.

STATEMENT 3 Health costs are eating up an ever increasing share of American incomes.

Agree or disagree with his counterpoints, they're certainly interesting.
