yeah that is why Canadians told me on my numerous vacations there that they come here, for the crappy healthcare. you're confusing quality of healthcare with life and death. we have more quality than the socialized countries. one thing that skews US statistics is that other ocuntries would just abprt a baby but here neonatal units etc help many survive but also many do not. nothing to do with quality, just more opportunity t live here than elsewhere.
