The deputy DNC chair seems to prefer communist health care systems to America’s system.
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee, praised the health care systems of Cuba and Russia in comparison to the United States at a rally on Monday.
“Why is it that countries like Cuba or Canada or Russia or a lot of places in this world spend half of what we spend per-capita and they got better health outcomes than we do?” Ellison asked.
The deputy DNC chair said that the American health care system is designed to help corporations profits instead of improve Americans’ health.
According to the CIA Factbook, the United States (42nd) ranks in front of both Cuba (55th) and Russia (153rd) in terms of life expectancy. Americans can expect to live nine more years on average than Russians and over one more year than Cubans.
