For those of you who want to blame U.S. healthcare workers' incomes for the high cost of medical care... Up until age 57, US per capita health care costs is equal to Europe. It is after age 65 that US costs becomes much higher than other countries. It is difficult to explain that by physician salaries... We spend more because our elderly are sicker

Why the contorted workaround? Why conflate "health care workers" with the topic of doctor's incomes? Why not just google directly for doctor's incomes by country?

Because you know that will show US doctor’s at or very near the top by a large margin?
