Bette Midler: 'In America It’s Easier to Take a Life Than to Get Health Insurance'

Actress and singer Bette Midler is quickly becoming one of Hollywood's most addle-minded personalities.

On Twitter Wednesday, she actually wrote, "Do you find it odd that in America today, it’s easier to take a life than to get health insurance?"

Let's look at the facts, shall we?

In 2011, there were about 14,000 homicides in our nation. That year, 48.6 million Americans were uninsured.

That means about 261 million people in our country had health insurance that year, or 18,643 times the number of homicides.

Midler might be a Divine singer, but her intellectual capacity is anything but.
