Hat Tip to Real Clear Politics for this one. RCP commentary tends to lean disproportionally to the right, but unlike a true conservative site they also publish opinions from the left. As such, there are some real gems there like this one from –
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL):
“I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven’t voted sooner to end this holocaust in America. I yield the rest of my time.”
Rep Grayson is using the 47,000 a year number developed by Harvard researchers which is limited to people WITHOUT any health care. That number doesn’t take into account the tens of thousands who die because of LIMITED Health Care, SUBSTANDARD health care, or lack of PREVENTATIVE care…
It also doesn’t include how many African Americans die each year because of racial differentials in care within the current system.
When you start looking at Infant Mortality rates, which seem to be intentionally jumbled such as to prevent coming up with real bottom line numbers (unlike crime statistics), you start seeing that something between 2 and 4% of all black babies in some areas of this country die due to inadequate pre- and post natal care before their first year of life…
