Henry Vilas wrote:No, what I am saying is that Ned doesn't like health care reform in the U.S., so he points out that some people died in England. I countered with the fact that many more people die in the U.S. every year because of the lack of affordable health care.

The study, which analyzed data from national surveys carried out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), assessed death rates after taking education, income and many other factors including smoking, drinking and obesity into account. It estimated that lack of health insurance causes 44,789 excess deaths annually.
Using data from the CDC renders the study questionable at best. The CDC is almost as trustworthy as the IRS.
