Nope that's the norm. You can research it and look at all sides of if you wish to. I lived over there for a total of 9 years and knew a lot of Germans. Most of them I knew were not very happy with the governement health care system and carried additional insurance so they would get better care.
The Germans are a good deal more active than most Americans. Gas is ver expensive so things like four wheelers and jet skis are for the rich only. But they have Volks Marches almost every weekend some place in Germany plus sport "platz" (mostly soccer fields) all over the place. Germans are not afraid of physical activity. Wait till we get "national health care and everyone working is paying 50%, yes 50% of the money they make in taxes (thats not only going to be income taxes but national sales tax too...that way everyone pays). That free health care isn't free. Us folks that earn money will pay for it though our noses.
Most health insurance companies are operating on less than a 10% profit margin. Only one or 2 are over that 10% mark. The for profit health care providers are the real bandits here. And they are avoiding taxes by expanding or building new facilities all over the place that are really not needed. Maybe spending a little time doing some research instead of spouting party rhetoric would do you some good.
Now back to the subject at hand.....what do you have to add about the death taxes?
