Healthcare Spending As % Of GDP, By Country

What do Americans get for their investment?

In the following graph, please note that, per capita, the United States pays two and a half times as much on healthcare ($7,290.00) as the average expenditure of all countries in the developed world ($2986.00).

Despite this spendthrift investment, Americans have lower longevity than five countries which invest less than the average amount of $2986.00 per person.

Compared with its first (and second) world peers, the United States healthcare "system" produces relatively shoddy outcomes at astronomically high expense.
