Old And Tired: Cuban Health Care. New And Hawt: Rwandan Health Care?

Seriously, Rwanda has health care?

So says some dingbat who claims we should emulate their model.

SNYDERMAN: One other sort of tough question. Some experts this weekend have said we are looking at class warfare in the United States and you have to say those words if we're going to move forward.  Would you agree with that?

ROBINSON: As somebody who works in this country but as a guest, if you like, I'll leave it others to put it in sharper terms.  What I would like to suggest from a global health perspective is look at what some of the very poorest countries have done. Rwanda, a post-genocide country, has 90% health insurance cover {for all 10 people left?-ed.}.  I was there last September and I was there in March --

SNYDERMAN: You're making me jealous.

ROBINSON: Doesn't it?

Not me.

Seriously, we should look to the Third World for advice on anything except being hellholes? Count me the fuck out.
