The other 15 percent includes people who do not want it - at least if they have to pay for it themselves.
Instead of concentrating on how to help that remaining 15 percent, President Obama and the Democratic Party rammed through a virtual takeover of the health industry in the United States that will focus not on saving lives, but on saving money.
Just like England's.
Making health insurance a "right" means our lives will be in the hands of more than 100 bureaucracies.
Everything the president claimed would not happen was, as Republican Joe Wilson put it, a lie.
Illegal aliens will be covered. Abortion will be covered. And there will be denials of service.
The majority of voters not only do not want this system, they want it repealed. On Tuesday, Missourians decided, 71 percent to 29 percent, not to participate in Obamacare.
No one should be surprised. Last summer, the people spoke out against Obamacare at town-hall meetings.
Rather than listen, Democrats went back to Washington and worked on shoving this bad policy through - unread.
Ted Kennedy's death was used to rally support for Obamacare.
The people of Massachusetts, who already suffer from Romneycare, subsequently replaced Kennedy with a Republican who is opposed to Obamacare.
Democrats did not care. They passed Obamacare anyway.
Soon we may all be as vulnerable as Nikki Phelps was.
The patience of the vast majority of Americans is extraordinary.
Despite being unfairly branded as racists by Democrats and their handmaidens in the press - the New York Times recently had to run an embarrassing correction over a false report of racial slurs - the Tea Party crowd and their sympathizers are staying cool, calm and collected.
Voters know that Nov. 2 is not that far away.
And after that comes Nov. 6, 2012, Mr. President.
