The 2009 Human Development Rankings were released recently. The US is placed 13th on the latest rankings. Though, we were also placed 26th on the Life expectancy list. While it is the case that 13th or 26th on lists such as these is not that bad, I would argue that it isn’t quite good enough. At the very least, it reveals that there is clearly room for improvement of the American system. I would suppose our low ranking in the life expectancy list has something to do with the lack of health care. Whats even worse is that these health care companies have a complete disregard for human life. To add insult to injury, some health care companies even sue entire states.
