I might also like to state that most people who find themselves with out health insurance are generally students, self-employed and those that are without a job. More than half on the uninsured are really under the age of Thirty five. They do not really feel they are in need of health insurance as they are young and also healthy. Their income is typically spent on homes, food, in addition to entertainment. Lots of people that do go to work either 100 or in their free time are not given insurance by way of their work so they go without due to the rising expense of health insurance in the states. Thanks for the thoughts you write about through your blog.
