The Fuzzy Math Of 47 Million

by Robert Romano - August 7th, 2009 -

According [to] the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2006 report, “Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States,” 46.9 million people are uninsured in the U.S. There’s only one problem with this statistic: approximately 31.85 million of them do not actually exist.

The numbers really cannot lie, although the report does. Out of a total population of 297.05 million, the report states on Page 20 that the “number of people covered by private insurance was… 201.7 million in 2006” and the “number of people covered by government health programs was… 80.3 million in 2006.”

Therefore, 282 million had insurance. Which means that out of a total population of 297.05 million, 15.05 million did not have insurance. Right?

Not at the U.S. Census Bureau. There, 297.05 million minus 282 million equals 46.9 million Americans uninsured.

This article debunks the nonsense about the 47 million uninsured using the figures right out of the census. However what it really proves is that government bureaucrats are biased lying left wing Democrats and will say anything to get power over American citizens.

Even if you use the 47 million figure of so-called "uninsured", the census data proves that number includes illegal aliens, which means the standard Democrat contention expressed 2 days ago by G.K. Butterfield that the 47 million number does not include illegal aliens is also a lie.
