Not one EU country among world's most free!

I see that in the latest, 2014 index of economic freedom (where the most free countries also have the best records on health, education, the environment and reduction in poverty) not one member State of the European Union is in the top 8. The best placed European country is Switzerland which is not and never has been in the EU.
Disgracefully the United States has the undistinguished record of 7 straight years of declining freedom. No wonder US families’ incomes have been in free fall – after years of Democrat control under President Obama.
