Out of the 47,000,000 Million People in this country, without Health Insurance, How many are Illegals.?

I have a Number of over 12,750,000, And this number is supplied by

a very reliable government source. There are other numbers supporting

that more than 20 Million are Illegal, And If you on the left and would like

to context the House and Senate versions of the Bill. A proviso is in

their to continue to pay for these Illegals. Now why Would you or I

want to pay for someones health care who is breaking the law.

    I think the number is much higher than 20 million. However, there are many decent, hard-working Americans who don't get health insurance benefits from their jobs. They should be allowed to purchase affordable health insurance and receive a tax deduction for doing so, without having their ability to purchase quality insurance or their rates go up because of preexisting conditions. Illegal immigrants should have no rights at all, except the right to go home immediately. Why is this so hard for the government to figure out?

    Let's break down the 47 million:

    During her campaign for President, Hillary Clinton admitted in questioning that, of the 47 million, at least 25 percent could afford health insurance but choose not to purchase it (those with a household income of more than $75,000 a year). I believe the number to be slightly higher, closer to 30 percent, but let's use Clinton's number. That's 12 million.

    Let's count illegal aliens. Believe it or not, illlegals are counted in this number, however, statistical models vary and have ranged from 5 to 12 million. Let's take the middle. 8 million.

    Then there are those who are already eligible for government programs but not participating. That number is estimated at 12 to 16 million. Let's take 12 million.

    Another group of people are those who self-fund. These are people with the financial resources to handle high medical claims. That number is estimated at 1 to 2 million. We'll take one for arguments sake.

    Then there are those who are between jobs. When people are fired or leave a job, they can opt for COBRA (an extension of their health benefits under the Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act, I believe 1996). When electing COBRA coverage, the premium is covered by the member. When someone is between jobs, or have obtained a job and have to wait 90 days for coverage, the government counts you as not having health insurance. That number is estimated at 5 million.

    These are not exact figures, and may vary, but they are pretty widely accepted.

    Add the numbers up and you get 38 million. That leaves 9 million without coverage (although they really do have coverage since the federal government, along with the states, administer medicaid and charity care).

    So the real number of uninsured is 8-10 million. There are 300 million Americans

    According to virtually every report at least a full third of that 47 million are illegal aliens (almost 16 million). Then there are the 10 million or so people that have an employer who offers health insurance and yet they refuse to enroll which takes us down to about 21 million who supposedly don't have health insurance.

    From our own census Bureau:

    …According to the US Census Bureau, 17 million of those without health insurance live in households having over $50,000 in annual income. That’s 38% of the uninsured in America.(2)

    In fact, 9 million – 20% of the uninsured – reside in households pulling down more than $75K a year. (3)

    …And then there are the young invincibles. Over 18 million of the uninsured are people between the ages of 18 and 34. (4) They spend more than four times as much on alcohol, tobacco, entertainment and dining out as they do for out-of-pocket spending on health care.(5) They represent 40% of the uninsured in America.

    …14 million people without health insurance are eligible for government health care programs like Medicaid and S-CHIP but choose not to enroll. (7) They represent %31 – nearly one third – of the uninsured in America.

    …The U.S. has 12 million illegal immigrants who don’t buy health insurance but still get health care.

    …So, how many are truly uninsured? Around eight million. Just 18% of the 45 million that we hear about so often.”

    About 12 million, but there are more Americans without insurance or under-insured.

    There are also many Americans breaking the law, like the ones in prison and we are paying for their health care and education too.

    Slap!

    I have read different stats, all report over 12 million illegals in this country.

    We don't but the Liberal politicians and Communists have worked out a system to get their votes even though they are not supposed to be allowed to vote.
