Norwegians pay a much higher percentage per capita than US, However It's also used MUCH MUCH better, not squandered left, right, centre and all the other points of the compass (same in the UK). Healthcare, education, environment, almost everything about life in Norway is better, streets are cleaner, much less crime, 99% of the population is bi-lingual (often tri-lingual), their govt works for the people, not to line their own pockets..... I could go on for days.
The US could be like Norway IF it embraced their ethics, but it never will because although you talk like the christian deity is your god, you act and accept the actions of those that prove you worship greed.
