Default Re: Republicans Candidates Should Ask ... What Would A Canadian Do?

Florian says: "There is also universal pre-natal and post-natal care, the absence of which in the US affects overall life expectancy rates. Infant mortality rates in the US are among the highest in the developed world."

STD replies: "I don't think that is necessarily true. As I understand it, there are significant differences in infant mortality by race; and we have a much more racially diverse nation than France."

The US ranks 28 out of 30 in the OECD infant mortality rate ranking. But I bet if we gave white infants extra weight in the counting, we'd come off much better. Are you suggesting, STD, counting black kids as, I don't know, say, three-fifth? I bet no one has ever thought of that!
