In case it's easier to understand with a bar chart

Well now I suddenly feel obligated as an analyst and so-called visualization expert to say I did not feel the need to modify the out of box look of this chart in order to make the point. I, too, dislike gridlines and love labels, and always advocate for super cool colors.

Let’s just ignore the fact that most of those countries pay 10-30% more in taxes each year. But don’t worry, it’s “free”. 643k people is 0.18% of the US population.

Medical costs in this country are way too high (but sure, "Obamacare is working") but in the rest of those countries, you get the healthcare you pay for. [insert here the tens of anecdotes like wait lists for surgery or baby Alfie, etc.]

I’m a Portuguese American and I’m currently in Portugal and you pay(not too expensive) for a private health care you get what you pay for. If you rely on the free health care and free clinics you have to wait way too much time and if you go to a private clinic it will cost a lot.

Americans actually spend more on healthcare than Canadians already, unfortunately the admin costs and concessions to private companies in the states mean that they get way, way less for their $$. This is a good breakdown:

Here in the UK everyone constantly complains about our health service & it's wrong. The has saved my life (& millions of others!) on so many occasions- all for FREE! We are so lucky to have free national healthcare in the UK- if I lived in America I would be dead!

People complain because they haven't experienced what it's like without universal healthcare. When push comes to shove they want to keep it.
