Only 8% said illness/injury preventing them from working was the cause

I understand the data I referred was taken 2009 right after the great recession and somewhat skewed. On the other hand, take a look at Kaiser report (from the industry, not by any policy folks, no skewing).

Calling the other number Fake news is incorrect, you can argue the timing and some of the question skew. But 8% is clearly the Fake news.
