Middle Class but Lacking Health Insurance

The WaPo's Theresa Agovino reports "Percentage of Uninsured Americans Rising" where she writes,
The percentage of working-age Americans with moderate to middle incomes who lacked health insurance for at least part of the year rose to 41 percent in 2005, a dramatic increase from the 28 percent in 2001 without coverage, a study released on Wednesday found.
This is a damn disgrace! Putting off preventive care and early solutions makes no economic sense and yet many Americans have little if any choice. We must consider universal health coverage ASAP. Peace ... or War!
