What Do We Mean By “The Uninsured?”

In the healthcare reform debates, one commonly cited statistic was “there are 47 million uninsured Americans.” Economics professor Antony Davies examines this number, and asserts that based on the evidence, the actual number of uninsured Americans was far smaller.

    Faulty information gathering and reporting, calls into question the motives of the presenters.  And why is having 100% usage of a private product of any legitimate concern of the State?

    Well, we have free health care now. So go get insured.

    It’s none of the gov’ts business whether I’m insured or not and now I’m forced to pay for something I do not want under penalty of fines. I am also forced to pay for abortions and abortifacients I will never use. So not only is it not free, I am coerced by the gov’t to pay for it.

    I’m 18 to 34. I wanted to start a health savings account. Thanks to Obamacare, I’m not allowed to do that.

    Man….this is depressing.  Informative though.  More people need to watch these videos.  Way more.

    I do like the way Antony breaks down the 14%.no surprises really.  Just lies lies lies and more damn statistics.
