Author Steven King wrote a tweet about Americans with no health insurance, claiming the following:
44 million Americans w/o health care. How’s THAT for a national emergency?
“44 million Americans [without] health care”
Fact Check: True.
According to PBS report on the Healthcare Crisis, approximately 44 million people do not have Health Insurance, and another 38 million have inadequate Health Insurance. This means that about one/third of all Americans are Health Insurance insecure.
These numbers support Steven King’s claim.
