Default US spends more on health care than anyone, sicker than most developed nations

All those pinko-commie-socialist nations in Northern Europe have better health care than the US, they are living longer, with lower infant mortality rates, and SPENDING LESS
(though we have a lot of MRI machines)

As long as I have a say in the matter I still pick what we have even for my children.

You want your children to have worse health care, live shorter unhealthier lives, pay more and potentially put your grandkids at risk?

This. lol

But honestly, if anybody thought the US had the best healthcare they were kidding themselves.
Maybe the best care if you're rich, but we aren't all rich.

We only pay more because there is more treatment available.

Shorter, unhealthier lives? That is due to people's laziness and lack of taking responsibilty for themselves. That has nothing to do with our healthcare system.

If you are educated and know how to use our system then you can't find better healthcare any where in the world. I hope my kids will be educated and take better care of themselves.

ok so i have been looking at these stats and I think the key is to get more MRI machines. Japan has the highest number of MRI machines per population and they also have the lowest infant mortality rate and live the longest. So the key to living longer is buy a **** ton of MRI machines. I think that should be the new health care bill. Buy 1 billion MRI machines and we will be fine

Exactly Americans have more options available, thus the quality of our healthcare is much better than those other nations. And, as everyone knows, you pay more for quality.
