I am forever astounded at how much we pay for health care in the U.S., and how comparatively little we get for it. In America, with nearly a quarter of adults uninsured or underinsured, we spend $6,657 per capita or 15.9 % of our GDP on health care. In the United Kingdom where nearly everyone gets government health care it costs about $3,064 per person or 8.2% of GDP. This Reuters article compares health care costs among leading countries. Read it and weep.
