This is government spending exclusive of private and corporate healthcare and insurance. This is rolled into whatever the universal healthcare budget turns out to be. It only "proves" the US spends money taking care of the uninsured and other countries allocate differently.

Japan is a universal health care provider but is NOT a single payor country. Nonetheless, they spend half of what the US does and stand 5th in health outcomes in the world. I expect radiation poisoning will take a toll and knock them around a bit.
