Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show discussning all of the jobs leaving the U.S.  Asserting that most of this is due to the high cost of healthcare.  Contending that 10 years ago the U.S. ranked 17th among industrialized nations in health and longevity.  Now the U.S. ranks 47th in health and longivety despite spending more on healthcare than all of the other 46 countries combined.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning a man in Texas that died of a heart attack while waiting for over 19 hours in an emergency waiting room.  Since 1996 the percentage of ER visits has risen by  32% while the number of ER's has declined by 7%.  According to the CDC the average wait time in an ER is 3.3 hours with some waiting as long as 24 hours.
