    For Christ's sake, I've been posting this for a couple weeks now

    How many uninsured people need additional help from taxpayers?*|*KeithHennessey.com

    So yes as usual, government numbers are wrong. Only about 3% of the population is actually uninsured.

    Actually ... I hear it on a clip run almost every day, all day, from one of his speeches which is used to advertise a "low cost" health insurance, the network is called "This", it's a KOMO network. So yes, he did say it.

    Jillian, I've not a clue to who Hennessy is, but I did note the source of the data: Census and HHS.

    Exactly... now why would you trust that he's accurately representing anything?

    regardless of what he says source is?

    Bloggers aren't evidence...

    The anti-choice folks swear they use data too....

    someday maybe they'll represent data truthfully.

    Jillian, you're melting down. Not hard to check the facts, doesn't matter if 'blog' or the disreputable NYT. Looks at Rathergate and tell me again how 'trustyworthy' the MSM is.

    taken from census data which of course must be biased right?

    If it's wrong, counselor, present your own data refuting the census numbers rather than just blindly swallowing the government line
