Voila! Uninsured problem solved by not counting them

John McCain’s health adviser John Goodman in the Dallas Morning News on solving the problem of the uninsured:Jcgoodman

"So I have a
solution. And it will cost not one thin dime," Mr. Goodman said.
next president of the United States should sign an executive order
requiring the Census Bureau to cease and desist from describing any
American – even illegal aliens – as uninsured. Instead, the bureau
should categorize people according to the likely source of payment
should they need care.

"So, there you have it. Voila! Problem solved."

  1. Impressive. McCain could work for the insurance industry.
    But then I suppose he already is, along, I expect, with most of Congress and even most members of state legislatures, going by my experiences in this area.
