You name another developed country without socialized medicine off the top of your head, and I’ll concede your point.

But you really should look up “economies of scale” to understand why the fact that smaller countries can do things like this actually makes it much more embarrassing that an enormous and wealthier country can’t. There is a reason mom-and-pop stores can’t compete with huge corporations.
