"Did you forget your VAT tax in that little calculation???"

I clearly stated that I was talking about income-based taxes. VAT is expenditure-based, and quite a bit harder to measure.

"And yes."

I'm not trying to pick a fight; I`m genuinely interested to see a comparison. How much do you pay in income-based taxes, and how much do you spend for your healthcare?

Nurses deserve way more than they are getting-They do all the work while the docs get all the money-I went to see a spinal specialist in Boston, after looking at my MRI, and a 6 minute exam, he said I don't need surgery-and charged me $485.00 dollars-I don`t care how well qualified you are 15 minutes does not equate to that much money--I refuse to pay.

My dear mother is a Surgical Nurse, and she worked 72 hours last week.
She deserves every penny she got for it, and da*n whoever says she doesn't.

its funny how the graph that shows elderly population also reflects how bad elderly people have it in the US. All the other countries are rising, the US is falling.

Does this show worse or better living standards than the rest of the world? And indirectly the skill of respective doctors?

Do Americans typically pay less than 19% of their income for all their national and local income-based taxes, and payments for fully-comprehensive healthcare?

Did you forget your VAT tax in that little calculation???

And yes.
