"France runs a multi-payer system that is UHC. It is rated #1 in the world in terms of providing healthcare. And it costs 40% LESS (per capita, in real terms) than what the per capita US cost is currently. Thus, it is the system that is broken in the US--otherwise, the US would be competitive in price as well. "

But peek under the hood.

France has staggering tax loads on middle class folks. gas, is ,what , $8 or $9 gallon by design (taxes).

People's disposable income is very limited.

People live in smaller houses crammed together for the most part.

Entire parts of cities now are run by islam-oh gangs and gangsters unsafe to even drive it.

Unemployment is high.

Ya know, other than arabic oriented muslims crowding in, I don't see anyone anywhere running the borders into France trying to get into that socialist paradise!

Companies are fleeing and jobs are vanishing with the high taxes and low productivity. Major companies are shutting down and laying off tens of thousands of workers. The country is not a place for innovation and growth. It's headed downhill.

It's slowly self destructing under the 'socialist' model.

The 'rich' are moving out of the country.

Oh, and that healthcare isn't free. They whack , what, 8%of your paycheck for your 'healthcare' and most people have a 'supplement' policy since your 'national policy' has deductibles.

The high taxes go to educate their doctors so they don't graduate with $300,000 in debt..... but you pay for it one way or another!.....in France it is the high taxes. In the US it is the higher health care premiums.

France is on the path to socialist failure.
