Is the cost to the French citizen of subsidized medical school included in the %of GDP.?

This "France is #1" survey was taken in 2000. I wonder how a more recent survey would portary things considering the financial shakeup Europe has been experienceing.

I also have mentioned this several times and have gotten po-pooed...but don't Americans subsidize the socialized medicine schemes in European countries because they basically refuse to pay what we pay for drugs?
