    That's because MSNBC is a lib media source - they like to share the kool aid. No one really reports on the number of uninsured that can afford it but elect not to. Have to wonder if the numbers include illegal aliens
    - I saw a report that stated hispanics are the largest segment not to have health insurance. Can't remember where I ran across it though.

    36M below the poverty level.

    47M uninsured.

    Do you suppose there is a correlation?
