The point was raised earlier about putting a number of the number of incremental deaths due to lack of insurance so that one could compare it to the four deaths in Benghazi. Well, here you go:A 2009 study conducted at Harvard Medical School and Cambridge Health Alliance, and published in the American Journal of Public Health concluded that “[l]ack of health insurance is associated with as many as 44,789 deaths per year in the United States, more than those caused by kidney disease. … The increased risk of death attributable to uninsurance suggests that alternative measures of access to medical care for the uninsured, such as community health centers, do not provide the protection of private health insurance.”http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/10/romney-says-peopl...There are a number of studies cited and all but one, which is a clear outlier and makes no sense have figures in 5 digits.
