Fact checking Randi -- 60% of people are already on gov't health care?
Advertisements [?]
"60% of ALL of the people in the United States are insured with YOUR taxpayer dollars. The entire military, the entire senate, the entire house, every federal employee actually, every state employee, county employees -- you know they're all insured with our tax dollars, which is fine."

Now, she leaves out people on Medicare, Medicaid, VA, Social Security, and other entitlements, who would also be insured with tax dollars.

Even if you add up ALL those people, does that even approach 60% of all people with health insurance?

Her new site doesn't have the program notes like her old one did, and she didn't cite anything.

Does this sound right to anyone else?
