Number of Uninsured Americans Continues to Rise

When the Census Bureau released its annual report earlier this year on poverty, income, and health insurance, that report, based on 2008 figures, pegged the number of Americans without health insurance coverage at 46.3 million, up from 45.7 million in 2007. Based on those figures, it was predicted that the U.S. will approach the 50 million mark in 2010. Sadly, the latest figures out of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) support that estimate. Just another reason that the Affordable Care Act is a necessity.
