Socialized Math

Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) on socialized medicine:

Well, if you go to the socialized medicine countries, you find about 20 percent worse results. You get it? One in five people have to die because they went to socialized medicine! Now, I’ve got three daughters and a wife. I would hate to think that, among five women, one of them is going to die because we go to socialized care, and we have to have these long lists.

Lesson of the day: Never trust statistics from a guy who thinks that 3 daughters plus 1 wife totals five women.
