FauxNews Happy to Hear Infant Mortality High in U.S. for Non-Whites

Tom Tomorrow on the US being second worst of developed nations for newborn mortality rates:

This Modern World » Obscenity

"Because of some unholy confluence of conservatism, free-marketism, and general head-up-ass-ism, this country has never made health care for all a national priority. Things like this are the result, and it infuriates me. Next time some right wing asshole starts talking about the scary, scary dangers of socialized medicine, just remember: among industrialized nations, only Latvia has a higher death rate for newborns than the United Fucking States of America.

For a nation as advanced and wealthy as we are alleged to be, that’s unspeakably obscene."
