let me guess ... these sources are not reliable enough ... look at the evidence ... the US has the best technology in the world when it comes to healthcare.. what good is it if only the rich can afford it ...
Well, the first link just goes to a table of "The World's Healthiest Countries" according to Bloomberg, but the criteria used to determine their results have more to do with lifestyle choices (smoking, obesity, activity level, etc.) and average income, not availability or quality of healthcare.

For the second link, I'm not sure if you actually read the article itself, but the results of those studies are very much in question.

If you click on the link in article you posted, then you will see a detailed explanation of why the results of the World Health Report 2000 ranking are based on outdated and incomplete data. But just in case you didn't see it (or didn't even bother to read your own "evidence"), here is the link that questions the validity of the WHO study:
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB125608054324397621.html

If you read the article, you will see that even WHO representatives would not consider their own ranking to be current.

I understand that you made up your earlier comments and then had to scramble to find anything at all to support your claim, so as to not appear to be talking out of the side of your neck; but you need to be a little more thorough and it helps if you actually read the articles that you post as "evidence".
