Lack of Insurance Kills 45,000 Americans a Year!

You have to be kidding me. This is the same smoke-and-mirrors that the left uses all the time.

Nearly 45,000 people die in the United States each year -- one every 12 minutes -- in large part because they lack health insurance and can not get good care, Harvard Medical School researchers found in an analysis released on Thursday.

No these people die because they do not take good care of themselves and end up dying from heart disease and diabetes. The lack of insurance has nothing to do with it. Also what do they term as not having insurance? If you are between jobs and are hit by a car are you counted as dying uninsured? I think you will get all you needed to know from who funded this "study."

The Harvard study, funded by a federal research grant, was published in the online edition of the American Journal of Public Health. It was released by Physicians for a National Health Program, which favors government-backed or "single-payer" health insurance.

I'm shocked that they didn't put this number at 10 million or 20 million or something. I mean 45,000 people is only .0001 percent of the population. There is no way such a small number will be able to sell a trillion dollar invasion of the insurance industry.

I wonder if their next study will be to find out the amount of people who will die on a waiting list for the Post Office Insurance to treat them. Rich people don't have to care because they will just by gold plated insurance that will jump the line. How is that fair?
