"Percent of budget" doesn't tell you much that's useful. I suppose it might be investigated as a neoliberal index, since it shows health as a growing slice of a rapidly shrinking pie. And I wonder whether "percent of GDP" - traditionally touted as an index of ability to pay - says anything much more than how the economy is being mismanaged under the same regime. The pie chart simply seems to show that health care is constitutionally incapable of adopting reform. I think a similar chart from 1980 would look pretty much the same with, possibly, a smaller piece of the pie for public health.
