Americans pay 18% of GDP vs 10.5% for the rest of the developed world. That is an extra $800B a year going to a predatory system owned by one percenters. For that Americans get to rank 40th in the world for average life expectancy. If you are a one percenter you can expect to live around ten years longer on average because you receive care equivalent to all those socialist commies in rest of the developed world. Americans also get to rank up there with Slovenia at 33rd for infant mortality. Athens has better statistics than Los Angeles. Americans like to brag that they have the best health care in the world and they do. You just have to be wealthy enough to afford it.
