McCain's Bad Medicine: A 50 State Analysis of John McCain's Health Care Plan

John McCain has a radical prescription for American health care that would unravel the employer-based health care system, raise taxes on middle-class American families, and leave millions of Americans with chronic conditions without coverage in an unregulated private insurance market.

These maps and data tables show the effects of his proposed plan on all 50 states.

Extracting totals from this report yield:

Currently Uninsured—46 million
Currently % Uninsured—18%
Currently Uninsured With Chronic Conditions—16 million
Under McCain Annual Health Care Spending Growth—6.7%
Under McCain Could Lose Their Employer Health Benefits—158 million
Under McCain Wouldn’t Find Coverage In Individual Market—56 million
Under McCain Tax Increase by 2013 for Couples Making $60,000—$1,100



This means McWar would increase the total uninsured in the U.S. to 102 million versus the current 46 million with ALL of that increase of 56 million suffering from some chronic medical condition.

'Life isn't fair,' McCain laments explaining campaign downturn

Well, boohoo! This rich old white man can't stand it because he's not getting what he wants! AND he's trying to smear Gwen Ifell at the same time! :evil:

Watch the Fox News video...it's so....sickening.
