Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics (Bureau of Gov't-Run Health Care)

OK, here we go: the tendentious statistics brigade, underwritten by an Ivy-league university:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Nearly 45,000 people die in the United States each year — one every 12 minutes — in large part because they lack health insurance and can not get good care, Harvard Medical School researchers found in an analysis released on Thursday.

Oh my God! One every twelve minutes! What a tragedy. Let me empty my wallet and please, Mr. Obama, sir, just take over my entire life, beginning with all the hospitals and medical clinics. We just cannot take care of ourselves any more. You do it for us.

What a crock. “Analysis”? Give me a break.
