Lies, Damn Lies And Statistics

You hear constantly in the health care debate about the so-called uninsured 47 million without health insurance. Obama repeated it again in his meeting to beat up Republicans on health care. Here is how that number actually breaks down...

10 million are non-citizens.

9 million make more than $75,000 a year.

8 million (additional) make more than $50,000 a year.

12 million already qualify for government health and just don't bother signing up because they are healthy and don't need care.

ONLY 8 million are poor and need health care they can't currently get except by going to an emegency room, which is what they do. They GET health care, they just don't have health insurance.

Remember that the next time some Democrat Liar insists that we destroy the greatest health care system in the world because of 47 million who need government to pay for it. Mis-stating statistics is lying.
