    President Obama for a third time has misstated the number of Americans who lack health insurance, this time doing it in an op-ed piece published Saturday by the New York Times.

    “I don’t have to explain to the nearly 46 million Americans who don’t have health insurance how important this is,” Obama said in the op-ed about his efforts to reform the American health care industry.

    In a July 22 primetime press conference, Obama falsely said there were “47 million Americans who have no health insurance.” At an August 11 town hall meeting in Portsmouth, N.H., he falsely said “nearly 46 million Americans don't have health insurance coverage today” and that “46 million of our fellow citizens have no coverage.”

    In fact, according to the latest available data from the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 35.920 million uninsured U.S. citizens and 9.737 million uninsured foreign nationals residing in the United States. Counting the uninsured foreign nationals, that makes a total of 45.657 million—or “nearly 46 million”-- uninsured people in the United States.

    Obama shows all the signs of being a pathological liar.

    These illegal aliens need to be counted; they aren't going anywhere. I think we should follow Reagan's lead and offer amnesty to these people.

    Then Census numbers used are a year old. Perhaps we gained a million in the last year.

    These do not include illegal aliens. This 9 million number are separate from them. Illegal aliens are included in the other 35 million which brings that legitimate number down another 10 or 15 million. So the 45 to 50 million number being espoused as Americans is incorrect.
