Man robs bank for $1 and why the US medical system looks bad to the rest of the world

Man Holds Up Bank For $1 And Free Prison Medical Care - The Consumerist
(In summary the guys goes in unarmed to the bank and specifically demands $1 - no more, tells the teller he will wait for the police and then sits down on the chair and just waits for the police, and is hoping for a 3 year sentence so he can get medical treatment.

I wonder why in the u.k. warning cries of the dangers of an American style healthcare system whenever privatization is brought up, this adds more ammo to that cause. But I guess we americans want to keep the delusion that our system is still better, somehow by some metric despite it being rated one of the worst of developed countries despite that we spend far more then anyone else.
