What I do agree on is that healthcare is cheaper in Holland then in the US. Because in the US the risk of being sued for malpractice is so high, that insurance premiums for physicians is ultra high. That, coupled with that if you have a sprained ankle you get sent in for an MRI and all sorts of test, is what driving the costs in the US up. So the low cost is not in anyway a feat the government can take credit for.
That is what Obama should do with the healthcare here. Malpractice is driving huge costs here. It is making unnecessary procedures to cover your butt. I don't think Obama will do it unless he proves me wrong and he really is a good human being. I expect costs to go on an exponential rise here in the US.
