The U.S. lags other industrialized nations in reducing infant mortality rates. In the year 2000 per 1,000 live births the U.S, had 6.9 deaths vs. Japan 3.2! The United States lags other industrialized nations in life expectancy at birth, the U.S 76.8 years vs. Japan 81.2 years. Large numbers of voters are looking for Universal Healthcare.
