I just got a RoboCall from AARP. They want their customers to contact their representatives to support health care because so many do not have health coverage. The NPR health comparison between countries (http://www.npr.org/news/specials/healthcare/healthcare_profiles.html) says only 82% of people are covered under the age of 65 (100% over 65). It also shows other countries cover only their citizens and legal residents (no such mention for USA).
According to the US Census Bureau, we have 37,265,110 people over 65 (that are 100% covered with health care) leaving a population under 264.4 M under 65. If 82% of the 264.4 M under 65 are covered that means 256.7 M are covered. Subtract 256.7 M (total under 65 that have coverage) from 264.4 M (under 65 total population) and that leaves only 7.7 M under 65 that are not covered with health care.
How many of these are illegal aliens???
And why exactly would it cost over a trillion annually?
STOP THE INSANITY! We do not want or need the government to take over health care... or energy... or our companies... (this could go on for a long time).
