Quick Links: Life Expectancy, ObamaCare

Avik Roy debunks, "The Myth of Americans' Poor Life Expectancy" (Forbes, 11/23/2011). A few key points:

Deaths from car accidents and homicides are unrelated to the quality of the US health system, and unfairly skew US statistics.

America doesn't have one health care system, but three.
