"Amazing what happens to life expectancy in the US when you have full healthcare coverage and healthcare costs exceed $10,000 per person per year!"

What happens? Medicare provides most of the car for those over 65. So?

Ajax:"A similar thing happens in Europe where the cost of healthcare is about $3,000 per person per year and life expectancy exceeds that of the US."

And the waiting lines are a lot longer.....and they don't have certain 'minorities' with horrible health outcomes......bringing down the averages.

Oh, but somehow, the US tax burden is 27% of GDP, and in Europe it is double...France tax burden is mid 50% area as is Germany. The, there you have $6/gal gas and 22% National Sales Tax (VAT).....
