Health care expenditures
From the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The US government spends more on health care as a percent of GDP (7.4%) than Switzerland, Canada, Italy, Spain, U.K., Norway, Australia, and Japan.
Besides that, except for Switzerland and France we spend at least 50% more in total on health care (again as a percent of GDP) than any other country in the world. (We spend 42% more than Switzerland and 46% more than France.)
