Ezra Klein - America spends way, way, way more on health care

We don't have a government-run system. But our system is so expensive that our government's partial role is pricier than the whole of government-run systems.

Absorb that: Our supposedly efficient supposedly free-market healthcare system costs us more in government spending alone than other countries spend on government-run systems.
