I agree parallelism takes over other issues, here but the start of the sentence, the phrase "the United States" doesn't it make it sound like "THE PLACE IS CAUSING THE ISSUE"

Hope I am explaining it properly:
something like
- the most beautiful palace in the world is Taj Mahal''?????

I'm not sure of B.
