We're 29th!

We spend so much on health care, yet we rank 29th in infant mortality. What gives? I understand the last eight years of neglect from Bu$hCo, but I thought we were a much better country than this.
The United States dropped to 29th in the world in infant mortality in 2004, the latest year data are available from all countries. The year before, it was 27th. In 1960, it was 12th.
