Nearly all western countries have public health care that works many times better than the USA in terms of outcomes. (The USA is on par with Cuba). Others cost only ⅓ to ½ as much. Why don’t Americans use a single payer system like everyone else? Obama tried to give it to them, but the Republicans watered it down to something very expensive with terrible outcomes. Why did they do that? Because the medical lobby gave them large amounts of money to derail public health care. Why did the lobbyists do that? To make more money! The irony is the Republicans blame Obama for the high Obamacare costs when they are the ones who insisted on it.
