United States Health Care Expenditures (In billions):
|Type of Expenditure||1990||2006|
|Annual percent change||11.8%||6.7%|
|Percent of GDP||12.3%||16.0%|
Two things jump out at me. The first is that betwen 1990 and 2006 health care spending has jumped from 12.3% of GDP to 16%.
The second is that government spending as a percentage of percentage of total healthcare expenditure has jumped from 40.1% to 46.1%.
