America - Best Health Care in the World

It's only common sense. The USA spends the most on health care so we must be number one. Ok, here goes another liberal, anti-American rant (I admit it, I should be investigated by Michelle Bachmann). But how do the citizens of the richest country on earth justify the fact that we rank 29th lowest in the world in infant mortality. We are tied with Poland and Slovakia. In the 1960's we were ranked 12th lowest in infant mortality.

Someone needs to explain why we are not #1 in lowest infant mortality. Highest levels of infant mortality in the USA seem to be among African-Americans. The increase may also be due to increased levels of preterm death, again found largely in African-Americans.
