’45 Million Americans’ — Who Are Those Guys? Part 2

by Larry Elder on Townhall.com

Last week’s article on why 45 million Americans go without health care insurance touched a nerve and generated many questions and assertions:

“You and your pesky statistics! Forty-five million Americans without health care is huge. And you wrote that 89 percent of the 85 percent of people with health insurance are satisfied. That means 25 percent of all Americans are unsatisfied!”

Elder: Those “pesky” statistics become especially pesky when misstated. I wrote that 45 million Americans have no health insurance, leaving 85 percent with health insurance — but not without health care. ERs must treat the uninsured, including illegal residents. Meanwhile, 89 percent of Americans — with or without insurance — are satisfied with the quality of their own health care.
