47 Million Uninsured...Really?

"47 MILLION UNINSURED!" is the rallying cry for those promoting the healthcare bill. I wonder if they know a portion of this 47 million consists of those who have changed from one insurance to another during the year and those so f***king rich, they don't even need insurance. They can pay "cash on the barrel". Think they might be skewing the numbers a little? Oh no, this is the administration of transparency, remember?

An interesting report written by June E. O’Neill and Dave M. O’Neill, Baruch College, City University of New York came out in June 2009 that describes who these 47 million uninsured are.

On page 36, one statistic jumped out at me. Out of the involuntarily uninsured, 33.3% of them are high school dropouts, yet only 7% of the privately insured are high school dropouts. Sounds like a good reason to stay in school, kids.
