Why do hundreds of thousands die every year WITH health insurance?
Should we ban it?
Isn’t this the same argument as Dems use when they say “45,000 die with no health insurance?”
It’s not “because.”
In fact, there was a study done. Here are the results:
The possibility that no one risks death by going without health insurance may be startling, but some research supports it. Richard Kronick of the University of California at San Diego’s Department of Family and Preventive Medicine, an adviser to the Clinton administration, recently published the results of what may be the largest and most comprehensive analysis yet done of the effect of insurance on mortality. He used a sample of more than 600,000, and controlled not only for the standard factors, but for how long the subjects went without insurance, whether their disease was particularly amenable to early intervention, and even whether they lived in a mobile home. In test after test, he found no significantly elevated risk of death among the uninsured.
See that? No elevated risk of death among the uninsured?
Do some of you get that you’re being played yet?
I’d love to see reform, but should we concentrate on the common sense Republican solutions to bring down costs?
