Help! I need a statistic to refute a butt-head!

Any idea how many people receive medical care in the US in a given year? Multiple treatments of the same person count as multiple people in this formulation.

Does the CDC document this? I defer to a DUer more med-info savvy than I.


Thanks!

3. Yet they love to post dubious stats that seem to support their propaganda. Curious!

This one was a meme-pic about the relative number of assault rifle deaths versus malpractice deaths annually.

4. That is what they are. Don't let that prevent you from hitting them with facts or challenging their

claims. I love to challenge their bullshit and watch them collapse into a fucking delusional dream thought process.

5. They will ignore your facts and change the subject to another issue...

until your facts on that issue make them switch to another issue. It is so fucking predictable.

6. Agreed

They tend to never let the issue be confused with the facts.
