    There was this thread title:
    Research: The intellectual differences between liberals and conservatives

    Well here is a prime example of how poor liberals are in simple math!
    But these shrift liberals won't even go and check the below facts!
    Source: The Current Population Survey (CPS) by the U.S. Census Bureau.
    Current Population Survey (CPS) Main Page
    10 million are not citizens
    18 million earn $50,000 or more and don't want insurance!
    9 million are already covered by Medicaid..
    ===========
    37 million of 46 million counted as "uninsured" ARE:
    either not citizens, --- don't want insurance --- or are already covered!

    That leaves less the 10 million!

    BUT NOT ONE liberal seemingly can refute this because THEY do everything else.. call the poster names, etc.. but they CAN NOT refute the simple math!

    And this NOT only shows how shrift their math comprehension is BUT
    intellectual shortage!!!

    Further proof of Liberal math fuzziness???
    Because of this agreement, every working American will keep his or her tax cut – about $1,000 for the average family.
    So Obama/Liberals wanted the average American family to get the $40 every 2 weeks for 8 weeks. Remember the bill was temporary extension for 2 months!

    So that's $160 over two months.
    GOP wanted tax extension for 12 months OR the full $1,000!

    So liberals... YOU make a big deal about pizzas, all these sob stories..
    (See White house.. What does $40 mean to you? | The White House

    Which is bigger folks...$160 for two months or $1,000 for 12 months???
    President/Democrats want insure just $160 for 2 months!!!

    WHAT IS THE AVERAGE American's math skills... we know Obama is ignorant!

    Did the GOP add anything to the bill extending the tax cuts for a year? Anything at all? Anything, maybe, about a pipeline?

    So? If someone doesn't want insurance, that still makes them uninsured and a problem. If someone is here illegally and doesn't have insurance, that still makes them a problem. How does breaking them into group alleviate the problem?

    50 thousand a month is 600,000 a year. There are 300 million in the USA. Now u do the math and tell me the% of the poll and how long it would take to poll all and get real numbers.

    It's not that we can't add, it's that you can't think.

    1) The only privileges of citizenship are voting and immunity from deportation. A non-citizen legal resident who has no health insurance counts.

    2) Someone who doesn't want insurance is still uninsured. That's probably a healthy person whose deliberately uninsured status pushes premiums up for everyone else.

    3) Those covered by Medicaid are not counted in the totals usually presented, any more than those covered by Medicare.

    Nice try, but as per your wont, this is an example of red herring and misleading argument.

    But the magnitude of 75% OFF in how many truly "uninsured" doesn't bother you when the ENTIRE health industry is NOW to be managed by an entity that already has 25% waste and fraud..i.e. Medicare/Government?

    YOU evidently have so little concept of big numbers just as Obama who
    naively said if we just CUT costs by 1/10th of 1% the $4 trillion DEFICIT (wrong word -- DEBT!) over a long term"!
    YES you and ignorant people like Obama have evidently NO IDEA that "long term" is 1,600 YEARS!!!

    BUT THAT doesn't mean any more to you then the FACT 6 votes cast for a problem that was 75% EXAGGERATED!

    NO mention in Obamacare of $250 billion a year waste in Medicare but give MORE to the entity that accepts 6,000% markups i.e. Medicare gladly pays for health claims that are 6,000% more then the costs!
    WHERE IS YOUR indignation?

    NO mention that $100 billion a year lawyers donated $300 million to Obama/Congress to keep paying the $600 billion a year in defensive medicine ...all because physicians are fearful of being sued!

    Put the nog down. You're ranting and no one can understand you. Couple of things:

    1) The Government will not be managing health care in this country. That is a GOP lie.
    2) The Debt never has to be repaid. Ever. In fact, it would be extremely bad if it was.
    3) Obamacare did cut waste and over payments in Medicare. To the tune of $500B. You can ask any "conservative" here and they will gladly tell you more about how Obama "gutted Medicare".

    are we planning to let non-citizen residents die at the entrance to the ER?

    No?

    OK then. Cheaper to get them insured than to force them to access care at the ER.

    Ron Paul seems to think we should.
