How Many People Are Actually "Uninsured"?
How many times have you heard the line about how "45 million Americans are uninsured..." as an argument supporting socialized medicine? Although, I believe the status quo is a form of socialized medicine and needs to be completely dismantled and replaced with a free market in medicine, the status quo is still a notch better than Obama's planned government nightmare. This article breaks down this "45 million" statistic and demonstrates that, in reality, only about 10 million Americans (out of a population of 300 million) are actually uninsured.
