Here's another reason our country sucks, from Nicholas Kristoff of the N.Y. Times:

"Here's a wrenching fact: If the U.S. has an infant mortality rate as good as Cuba's, we would save an additional 2,212 American babies a year.

"Yes, Cuba's. Babies are less likely to survive in America, with a health care system that we think is the best in the world, than in impoverished and auotcratic Cuba."

How about this for a good deal: You survive childbirth in Cuba then escape to live in freedom and prosperity in America.
