It always make me laugh how against healthcare Americans are. I can't help but wonder if it's just a stubbornness thing, like they just aren't willing to admit that other countries do something better than them

The thing is, Americans do not think about healthcare until they need to use it.  The mentality for the young is why should I pay into this system when I am healthy.  They never look at the worst case scenario where they could get injured and find themselves paying huge medical cost or come down with Diabetes, Crohn's disease or some other life altering medical issue.  They never think they could be fired or laid off from a job and suddenly find themselves without health insurance hoping nothing goes wrong while they are between jobs.

In America, Healthcare is a huge business and the profit margins are off the charts.  This is one main reason why the people who stand to make the most money will definitely make sure nothing comes into play that could regulate it.
