EMENDATION

READER Charles Andrews points out that we miscalculated the number of projected newly insured in our analysis of the CBO healthcare report. For non-Medicaid/CHIP recipients there would be an increase of 16 million, not 7 million as we said.

"Myth 6: This bill provides health care to 31 million people who are currently uninsured.

Fact: This bill will mandate that millions of people who are currently uninsured purchase insurance from private companies, or the IRS will collect up to 2% of their annual income in penalties. Some will be assisted with government subsidiies."

Forcing people to buy fraudulent largess for insurance racketeers is not providing healthcare or "increasing" the number of people covered: it is, however increasing the number of people raped by Congress for the benefit of insurance cos who insure nothing other than continued thwarting of the people's will.
