The French and others tax their people 50-70% pay for 'free' education for doctors.

That comes out of the GDP, but isn't shown as 'health care'

The French also likely pay for a lot of the clinics and hospitals out of other budgets or tax cuts......and that doesn't show up as 'health care costs' in their calculations.

Isn't it funny that most French have private insurance policies, above and beyond what the gov't provides.

oh, no one told you the French have to pay part of each medical $10 co pays...likely 30 bucks out of $100 paid from the citizens pockets or via the 'additional insurance' they carry to cover most fo the $30 per hundred the gov't doesn't pay.

We got too many people now with $10 co pays who go running to the doc for a splinter or cold......
