Tea Party Vultures Cheer Letting Uninsured Die

You know most of these people go to church on Sundays or watch televangelists. Too bad they don't believe in my Jesus.

Meanwhile back in objective reality, the number of Americans without health insurance grew to 49.9%, 16.3% of the population: [NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The number of Americans who lacked health insurance last year climbed to 49.9 million, up from 49 million in 2009, the Census Bureau said Tuesday.

Some 16.3% of Americans were uninsured in 2010, according to the bureau's report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States, statistically unchanged from 2009.
Much of the decline can be attributed to the loss of employer-provided coverage, which fell dramatically amid sustained unemployment and as employers continued to cut back on benefits.]
