How stupid are we?

While we fight over obamacare, (the US' half-assed attempt) the world is laughing at us. Other governments have figured out that universal healthcare is the most efficient way to go. Sure, it's not perfect, but shouldn't the smartest country in the world be able to take the best ideas from around the world and build a good system similar to Medicare?
