From a Dallas Morning News interview with John Goodman, who, according to the paper "helped craft Sen. John McCain's health care policy." After noting that those who must use the emergency room are, in effect, insured by the government, Goodman said,

I have a solution. And it will cost not one thin dime. The next president of the United States should sign an executive order requiring the Census Bureau to cease and desist from describing any American – even illegal aliens – as uninsured. Instead, the bureau should categorize people according to the likely source of payment should they need care.

So, there you have it. Voila! Problem solved.

I guess that passes for thinking among the GOPhers.

By the way, the Morning News headline for the article containing Goodman's comments was "Texas still leads nation in rate of uninsured residents."

Update: The McCain campaign denies that Goodman was an advisor.
