Child welfare:

The nanny state | The Economist:

"Nine states are well below the group average; these laggards include America. It is not just infant mortality, an essential indicator, in which America lags behind (see chart). Though it has the world’s most expensive health system and spends more per child than most oecd countries, outcomes are poor. Performance falls behind on several indicators, ranging from birth-weight to teenage pregnancies."

We may be just ahead of Mexico and Turkey in infant mortality rates but we don't have any of of that commie pinko socialist health care that Sweden, Japan and that evil minded France have. We're red, white and blue, through and through, even if we have to sacrifice some of our babies to do it.
