      A draft report from the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (CCR) calls health
      problems and lack of adequate health care the "enemy" of Indian Country.

      "Broken Promises: Evaluating the Native American Health Care System" is a
      follow-up to last year's "Quiet Crisis" report that generated considerable
      discussion for noting that the federal government spends less on health care
      for American Indians and Alaska Natives than on prisoners. According to the
      analysis, Indian Health Service patients receive $1,914 on average compared
      to $3,803 on average for inmates.
