The Phantom Uninsured

"Of the 45.6 million persons in the U.S. that did not have health insurance at some point in 2007, 9.7 million, or about 21%, were not U.S. citizens."

"Also among the uninsured are 17 million Americans who live in households where the annual income exceeds $50,000; 7 million of those without coverage have incomes of $75,000 a year or more."

"Obama says his plan is to ensure "that there is an option out there for people . .. where the free market fails." But the free market has not failed, except when it's been overburdened by overregulation, mandates and litigation to the point that it is no longer free."
