US spends most per capita for health care of any country, yet our health care quality is not nearly top of the list

From Kaiser Family Foundation:

Health spending is rising faster than incomes in most developed countries, which raises questions about how these countries will pay for future health care needs. The issue may be particularly acute in the United States, which not only spends much more per capita on health care than any other country, but which also has had one of the fastest growth rates in health spending among developed countries. Despite this higher level of spending, the United States does not achieve better outcomes on many important health measures.

We’re only number in one in spending money, not in getting quality health care, regardless of what the patriots over at FOX News would like you to think. Blind nationalism is not a health care plan.
