This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

Other countries tend to have less Infant Mortality and disease ratings and the US only claims rank 37 on best healthcare systems around the world.
Granted, they may be quite low, But other nations have lower rates in these factors and the higher members of the list tend to be Government owned, Socialist healthcare systems.
Also yes, I do aknowledge the problems with Government owned Healthcare such as overcrowding, Lack of ward space and the such, but I just find that there are less to be found with Government owned than with the Private system.
Although I do agree about not blaming the Insurance companies as it doesn't really adress the main problems.
The US currently ranks 33rd (2009) in infant morality. But after some investigating there are some interesting facts that explain some of it.

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db23.htm

This report by the Center for Disease Control found that the US has more premature births than Europe. For infants born before 37 weeks (meaning, born premature) have a better survival rate in the US than in Europe, but for infants born after 37 weeks the survival rate is worse than Europe.

"If the United States had Sweden’s distribution of births by gestational age, nearly 8,000 infant deaths would be averted each year and the U.S. infant mortality rate would be one-third lower."

This means that if our premature birth rate was the same as Sweeden, our infant mortality rate would be about 4.2, which puts us around Belgium, France, and Spain at 11-13th place.

While it's true that there are people who won't go to the seek care because they fear the cost, we have substantial programs already for those who are actually poor. That's what medicaid is for. And as I said in an early post, no one who needs care that goes to an emergency room can be denied care. The problem is that many people might not be assed to apply for medicare, go to the hospital, or buy health insurance. An issue that we have is that healthy young people, even if they can afford it, tend not to opt to get health insurance because they don't think they need it. They take a risk, then something might happen to them, or they could get pregnant and things become rough.

The philosophical problem with government run health care in the US, is that it is counter to our founding principles. The Constitution and Bill of Rights lay out what the Federal government may and may no do (Constitution mostly lists the powers granted to the federal government, and the bill of rights mostly lists restrictions), and reserves ALL rights not mentioned for the States. It would be perfectly fine for individual states to opt to create a state-run health program, but the federal government does not clearly have the power to.

There is a clause in the constitution that states that the federal government alone has the power to regulate commerce between the states, and this clause has been misused in the past to allow the federal government to regulate things that it really wasn't granted the power to do. They claim that if pot is grown in a given state, and meant only for consumption in that state, that the federal government can regulate it (outlaw it) because there's a slight chance it may cross state lines.

So, I logon and check the BAR, see it's on page 200, and I, thinking it's a race like it used to be, make a quick BAR thread to see what happens, only to find out that the system has been changed. Again.

Just putting that out there. :/
