Appalling: US Healthcare by the Numbers
Numbers vary by year and data source, all sources linked.
The US spends far more than the average OECD country on care. Nearly every universal care country has zero out of pocket expenses.

and The World Bank
Our taxes currently pay for approximately 2/3 of ALL US healthcare expenditures, which is ~50% more than OECD average.
The average OECD per person is $4729, we currently pay ~$6,065 per person via taxes, AND the GOP claims THE BEST THEY CAN DO with repeal and replace is to give us a $13,000 Maximum-Out-Of-Pocket (MOOP)? THIS is ineptitude. This is corruption. This is 100% unacceptable. Hold them ACCOUNTABLE!
