We pay far more per capita than Canada does. I don't know how I can be more clear than that.

According to data from OECD, the US spends $10,209 on healthcare per capita. Our healthcare is more, because frankly, it's better than yours. Innovation, research, clinical trials, and more all come mostly from the the United States.

In addition, much research has been done by literally hundreds of non-partisan groups analyzing the costs of a government run healthcare system in America. I'm not sure why you think you would know so much more than all these other folks?

Hell - Even Bernie Sanders himself states that government run healthcare in America will need 40,000,000,000,000 in additional taxes over the next ten years. That is 40 trillion.
