Healthcare quick fact

My friend just came back from Germany.  He works there for several months at a time.  He told me he gets so angry watching the healthcare debate from afar.  It seems so ridiculous when you realize how insane our system can be.  Take the example he gave me:

His prescription for 30 pills cost him $142 in the US.

His prescription for 100 pills in Germany – same company, same medicine, same dosage, same box – cost 10 euros, or $14.20.
