"US healthcare isn't as bad as you think it is. It's much better than Italy's, and slightly better than the UK's"
For an IT pro who, I hazard to guess, is in a fairly high income percentile, I'm sure that's true.
While I'm not personally familiar with US system, my understanding is that as people go down the income scale, it gets worse than the UK's and perhaps even worse than Italy's, while in those countries the level is pretty stable throughout.
One advantage the US DOES have is a high ratio of respirators to population.
