Re: 60 Minutes: Comptroller Walker - health care choices must be made
"On cost we're number one in the world. We spend 50 percent more of our economy on health care than any nation on earth," he says.
"We have the largest uninsured population of any major industrialized nation. We have above average infant mortality, below average life expectancy, and much higher than average medical error rates for an industrialized nation," Walker points out.
He is accompanied on the wake-up tour by economists from the conservative Heritage Foundation, the left-leaning Brookings Institution, and the non-partisan Concord Coalition.
