U.S. health care vs. socialized health care in 5 countries: The US spends almost twice as much on health care as countries like Canada, Japan, and most in Western Europe. 
Graphic: Jake Turcotte Research: Allison Terry

Take a look at the slides they put together from the OECD Health Data. Found that out of the estimated $8,500 Americans spend on healthcare per capita, the government covers about 47.8% of that cost. In other countries, the government covers more and total costs are lower.

The Affordable Care Act keeps trying to be what it was interned for but we keep getting slowed down!

In short, last thursday Obama decided that even if your current health plan is spotty and doesn’t offer you what the government deemed essential in a health plan (like covering pills and mental health care) you don’t have to find a better one—until 2015.  People were freaking out that they would have to find a new one or pay more for one that is actually useful so Obama caved and gave all the worry warts another year to figure it out. 

Good news for some, especially those who would actually have to pay more for a better plan but you are few and far between!  I just hope it doesn’t slow down the overall plan to lower healthcare costs, but we can only wait and see!

Here’s the nitty gritty details for those of you following the unfolding of our nation’s first attempt at affordable and nearly universal coverage:
