Public Opinion of Health Care

To help round out our series of posts on health care, I was going to survey the survey evidence about the public’s opinion of their health care system in various countries. But Kevin Drum has beaten me to it: check out his post for the story.

The punchline: the US ranks 14th out of 17 countries for satisfaction with health care… but Americans who receive government-provided health care (i.e. the poor and the elderly) are significantly happier with their health care than the rest of us.
