It's liberal policies that beginning in the 1930's made America all of the things you list and improved Living standards and social indicators at the same time. You talk about higher taxes? In the 1950's and 1960's top marginal tax rates were >90% and America was never more prosperous. A single family household could afford a home and there was effectively full employment.

It's conservative policies since the 1980's that have:
-seen the U.S. fall way behind in living standards and have seen the wealth gap widen,
-seen the US share of production and exports decline, and have resulted in the world's largest trade deficit, by far,
-seen immigrants to the US largely confined to dead end low paying jobs, with little possibility for advancement
-seen the middle class shrink,
-seen the reputation of the US abroad go from positive to negative, even amongst longstanding allies.

As for Canada and Sweden, both are doing comparatively better while having distinctly better social indicators, including better health results, despite spending half the money per capita.
