Health first, prosperity follows.

Hans Rosling visualizes data with Gapminder helping us see the correlation between various parameters.  One of his conclusions is that the rate of change in prosperity depends on the availability of healthcare. 

This begs the question: if healthcare is so important for our prosperity, why is it that in the United States the general opinion seems to be that it should not be a priority for government? Why do we fear socialized healthcare?
