Comparative Visual Healthcare Spending

This is interesting: MSNBC did some calculations of the US budget and presented it in terms of a $1000 household budget. Most of your tax dollars go to finance healthcare. Personally disturbing for me, b/c I spent less than $400 on healthcare for myself last year!

I wonder how much we could deduct off that amount if no needless MRI’s were performed. (see previous post)
