The Uninsured

Good news out of the Census Bureau today: Estimates that the uninsured have reached 47 million were overstated, the real number is closer to 45 million. That's two million fewer people than we though lacking coverage, which is a welcome surprise.

Hooray! There's only 96% as many uninsured as we thought!

Shame on us for overstating the case so radically! This invalidates all the things we were saying about problems with our health care system.

good news, but, from what i understand it's likely that the troubling trend of recent years isn't going to be affected - this wasn't just a one-year miscode, instead, it probably led to an over-estimate each year.

from 04-05, the previous releases had the % of uninsured rising from 15.6 to 15.9%, while the revised releases showing it rising from 14.9% to 15.3%.

so, good news, yeah, but, doesn't change the general impression that things are probably getting worse.

How convenient for the GOP and BushCo! Now they have a solid talking point on why universal health care is not needed - the marketplace will self-adjust. The health insurers can adopt the tactics of the insurers of long-term care for seniors.

They can insure everybody and deny claims coverage for 96% of them. That's a winner! Ding Ding Ding.

But wait, hasn't the GSA, the Dept of Justice, FDA and other agencies been highly politicized with know-nothing (and wrong-counting) "Bushies"? Is it possible that Kyle Sampson was moved to Census from DoJ?

That's two million fewer people than we though(t) lacking coverage

or 2 million people who can no longer be counted because they lacked coverage. I guess it is in how you look at the numbers.

All the government sees is numbers. I see the people when I bring my wife to the hospital. A sad condition for a super power.
