John Green explains in a non-partisan way in this video why Health Care is so astronomically expensive in the USA. Well worth watching. BTW, this has been fact checked like mad and found to be accurate. Feel free to look it up for yourselves.

"For a much more thorough examination of health care expenses in America, I recommend this series at The Incidental Economist and The Commonwealth Fund's Study of Health Care Prices in the U.S. Some of the stats in this video also come from this New York Times story
