Alarming Statistics

I don't know if anyone else caught this article in the New York Times this morning, but this is pretty shocking. I had no idea that 1 in 4 Americans are uninsured! The article says there's approximately 47 million of us and it's growing. I knew this was a problem but man alive 1/4 of the country. I don't have the solution, but you can bet I will be paying attention when candidates discuss this issue!

Update: It's been awhile since I made this post but I wanted to leave you with the correct information. The ratio of uninsured people in this country is approximately 1 in 6, not 1 in 4 that I posted above. Thanks kevin for pointing this out.
