Improvements and Developments to the Information Section of this Website

If you have specific ideas / needs for this index, please submit them: Contact Bob.

Please have patience about this Index and the entire Information section of the website. The Index is relatively old now, and it will be corrected and refined over time. The information is extensive, as you can see, and the campaign details have changed over time. It will take time to get individual web pages updated.

Explanation of specific terms that are used in the Index

"single-payer". The use of "single-payer" in this index is short for the United States implementation of pure single-payer health care, which means 1 fund, 1 plan, and 1 payer. That is, national single-payer health care, Improved Medicare for All, which is the U.S. implementation of universal health care. Health care for all. Everybody in. Nobody out.

"six other countries". The references to "six other countries" in this index means the six countries that have been top performers in the world in amenable mortality: minimizing deaths under age 75 due preventable causes. The United States has been at the bottom of lists of over a dozen free-market countries regarding amenable mortality. A primary reason for the poor performance is that Americans generally have a low number of physician visits per person (poor access due to the high cost) compared to other countries. The six top high-performing countries are Australia, Canada, France, Japan, Italy, and Spain.

"current system". When you see "current system" in the index, you can know that it's the health care NOT for all system that we have in the United States today. The benefits of universal health care, Medicare for All, shine astonishingly better compared to the current system.
