People die without health insurance

This seems like a pretty basic point, yet people keep arguing the opposite: if you take away health insurance from millions of people, then people will die. Why is this controversial?

Experts agree:

The specific numbers might be hard to agree upon, and even harder to forecast if the Republican bill is passed. But the link is clear: a lack of health insurance could increase the risk of death for millions of Americans.

But while estimates disagree, the researchers who produce them often do not. In a 2013 Politifact interview, the author of the Urban Institute study, Stan Dorn, said: “It makes sense that as time goes by … health insurance coverage has greater impact on health outcomes.”

Those who support stripping health insurance way from people need to own this.
