The American system runs through and for insurance companies, and insurance companies are not known for having low margins of profit
One of the reasons why health care is so expensive everywhere is the maneuverings and lobbying of the big Pharma.
They have found a lot of ways to keep their patents long after they were supposed to have elapsed and are very aggressive with lawsuits. Their explanation
for exorbitant prices is that research and development is costly, however its seems that has been greatly over stated according to recent reports.
They do a lot of lobbying though and so all too often governments are in their pockets rather than standing up to them for the consumer.
