Healthcare costs in Holland are through the roof! There is no incentive to make healthcare cheaper, because there is no competition. Competition can only exist in a free market.

The Netherlands spends less per capita, and less per GDP on healthcare than the US does (these are 2008 figures - so pre-Obamacare figures).

It also has a higher life-expectancy, lower infant mortality and a higher general approval rating of their healthcare system than the US.

So I don't buy your argument that making the Netherlands have healthcare like the US did in 2008 would be cheaper or better.
