For the people that have careers with some great benefits and for the people that can just afford it, some American insurance plans are the best in the world, too. Further advantages of the current US system include the fact that the tax payers do not have to pay for the expense that is associated with providing medical care to the millions of people that need it. It seems that people in the US enjoy the fact that they do not have to pay for other people to benefit and will only have to pay if they fall victim to some kind of problem themselves.
The costs of health care in the United States are higher than any other country in the world, and naturally that means is some kind of tax was introduced to the people to pay for the cost of the system then there would be mass dissent. The cost on the tax payers would be huge and it seems that most of the American people would actually not agree to paying such a large amount of money in taxes. With organizations like the Tea Party becoming popular, a move like this would not be welcomed - nor would it ever happen due to the system of making law in the country.
