Are 46 million people really uninsured?

That 46 million people figure is usually used by liberals and the lame-stream-media as their argument for more government control of our lives.But the figure is completely exaggerated.
When we breakdown their figure into different groups, this is what we got:
- 10 million of the uninsured are illegal immigrants.
- 18 million people have a household income of over $50000 per year. More than half of them have a household income of over $75000 per year.
- 14 million of the uninsured qualify for some kind of government insurance, they just haven’t applied yet.
This brings the liberals’ figure down dramatically, doesn’t it?
46 million people = 33%. The actual figure is around 3%.
