She undoubtedly would have appreciated all that Social Security does for the disabled community and their families.

Americans Pay More for Healthcare But Less Healthy Than Those in Other Developed Nations


SHOCKING FACTS: Workers pay 47% more for healthcare today than in 2005: Health in America cost $2.4 trillion dollars in 2008, over twice as much per capita as any other country on Earth and yet Americans rank 37th in overall health outcomes according to the World Health Organization. The Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA) only tweaks around the edges and is wasteful because it expands the role of the private insurers: 30 cents out of every dollar goes to pay for paperwork, marketing and profits for the 1,000 insurance companies in America: The ACA still leaves 23 million Americans uninsured: 62% of all bankruptcies are caused by medical debt: No other developed country has such a badly functioning healthcare system.

Retail Sales and the Fed

It's been a light week thus far in terms of economic data. This morning's sales report is the first of a few key reports scheduled for release over the next two days. Retail sales are expected to rise 0.6% in May after a minimal 0.1% rise in April.

Those calling for 4% GDP in the near term are looking for a resurgence in spending this month, otherwise the economy will be struggling to reach 2% in the current quarter. Keep in mind, however, even with a 4% rise in Q2, coupled with first quarter's one percent drop, the economy would remain in the stagnant 1.5-2% range of the last several years.
