Increase in the Number of Uniinsured Americans

Kate Steadman at HealthyPolicy blog posts the latest findings of the Commonwealth Fund, a  a New York-based private health care policy foundation.  For an overview of the Commonwealth Fund's findings, see the Houston Chronicle here.  They demonstrate that in 2005 the number of middle-income Americans who lacked ehalth insurance for part of the year rose to 41%.  We seem to be moving in the wrong direction on this issue and something tells me the $3.00 price of gasoline is not going to help people save money to pay for health insurance. 

The entire study paints a rather bleak picture for midle-class America.  [bm]
