Bush Record on Health Insurance and Poverty

The U.S. Census Bureau likes to hide statistical changes using two and three year averages. Below are the raw numbers on the number of uninsured since President Bush has been in office.

2001 41.2 million
2005 46.6 million
Total increase 5.37 million
Percentage increase 13%

Switching to poverty, how has the Bush team’s policies performed?

2001 32.9 million
2005 36.9 million
Total increase 4 million
Percentage increase 12%

There you have it, the Bush policies at work!
