Some More Equal Than Others...

One of the most prolific, and tenacious, canards cited by those who advocate a nationalized health care system here is the (demonstrably) false assertion that such a system saves more lives than ours.
We've gone over this ground before, but there's new proof of just how silly that argument is:
Okay, says the skeptic, that just proves that the NHS (and its Continental Cousins) isn't very good at getting new drugs out to patients; doesn't prove that we do any better.
And a fair point that would be.
If it were true:
"The proportion of colorectal cancer patients with access to the drug Avastin was 10 times higher in the US than it was in Europe."
