The Left's Lie About Uninsured Americans

We have heard it time and again during this campaign from the Libs that 46.6 million Americans are without health insurance. They site this figure from a Census Bureau study several years ago.

What they don't/won't tell you are the underlying figures that account for that total.
Let me list them for you:
  • 9.5 million are not U.S. citizens
  • 17 million have household incomes for $50,000 or more and could afford to pay for health care premiums but choose not to do so

That gets us to roughly 20 million Americans without health insurance, but there's more...

  • 18 million are between the ages of 18-34, the vast majority of whom are in good health and are not in need of health insurance or choose not to purchase insurance
  • Only 30 percent of the non-elderly included in the total who become uninsured remain uninsured for more than 12 months; 50 percent regain their insurance within four months

There in not a health insurance crisis in America, but rather a health cost crisis. Thanks to the Libs who want to control more and more of our lives, we can expect these costs to increase dramatically in the next few years. When free markets are not able to thrive, history has proven that costs increase and service/quality decreases.

Just another typical Lib Lie that America believes without ever questioning the numbers.
