The Cost of Care

I know health care is one of the most boring subjects on the planet, but I thought this graphic was bad ass:

-the left side is the cost of health care per person for each country

-the right side is the average life expectancy for that country
A country/line in red represents a country without universal coverage (U.S., Mexico) while a country/line in blue represents a country with universal coverage (everybody else)

-the thicker the line, the more people in that country avail themselves of heath care (doctor's visits, etc.)
