True, Europeans pay more taxes, but we pay just as much (or more) in other ways so is there really a difference?
We Americans have been programmed to hate the word "tax" so a guy who has no problem paying $500 a month to a profit-making insurance company would scream bloody murder if that payment was to the government for the same service. Does that make sense?
And really he would pay less because the government doesn't have to pay stock holders or million-dollars executives or build big fancy buildings.
