America if you can afford it. When was the last time youve heard of other government officials coming over from their countries to receive medical attention ? If self hating americas believe that 'free' health care system at were you take a ticket and wait in line 3months for an MRI then your fooling yourself.

I would say the UK has the best when it comes to price and taking care of the population, however it is very slow with large waiting lists.

American people directly spend 7% of their budget on health care, the government spends the rest. Magnatomicflux's spending/GDP graph includes all spending regardless of the source.

What's really sad about this is, we could have the best national healthcare in the world without ever having to raise taxes if we could just stop spending so much on waging war.

Yep, its our governments fault, if we could've just stopped being so annoying to other countries trying to control them then terrorists would've never hated us and because of them we went to war which the war put us in debt.
