    the US would be at par with most of the other industrialized countries.

    This would be a great discussion to have, and probably an even better result if enacted. But given that the country looks as if it can't even agree to ban weapons of mass destruction after a massacre, I'm not going to hold my breath.

      and exhale slowly instead.

      Hell, I wouldn't hold my breath on a discussion taking place, let alone having some sane ideas enacted.

      Meanwhile, keep on keeping on.
