    Germany still has MUCH higher taxes than the US.

    Are you proposing we should assume the German tax rate?

    So lets get this straight.

    If we assume Germany's tax rate, do we get healthcare thrown in?

    How about all those vacation days?

    You just made a statement you knew nothing about. So how much higher, how long I got to wait for you to back track and do some searching so you can get a figure.

    Germany has 82.5M people

    The US has 300M people.

    China has 1.3B people.

    Japan has 128M people.

    Germany is about the size of Montana.
