This is wrong.
I see you are trying to make a point but don't throw stats out there which are just false.

The 06 census showed an uninsured percentage of 15.8 percent, a 4.9 percent increase since 02.

It is safe to assume these numbers have gone up significantly as well since then, as the unemployment has as well. That is quite bit of the American population. This post is simply to show information and point out misinformation.

Re: Healthcare Education and Q&A Thread


I agree with your statement about attacking the cost of the delivery of care. My question is does that include a stronger regulation of the pharmaceutical industry and its relationship with doctors? What about the relationship between insurance companies and doctors?
