More Kids Than Ever Without Health Insurance

More than two million kids in the United States of America are without health insurance of any kind in any given year because their parents are out of work and have lost their health insurance coverage.

More than 2 million children in the United States become uninsured each year after their parents lose their employer-based health insurance, according to a new American Academy of Pediatrics study.

Isn't it time for some sort of Universal Health plan in the United States just like most other industrialized countries provide for their citizens?

I don't understand how we can spend billions a month on a war in Iraq when our children at home are going without basic health care.

Senators in Washington dither over steroids in baseball and the "nuclear option" dismanteling the fillabuster while Jennifer and Michael, and LaQisha and Da'Shawn can't get their vaccinations or antibiotics for their strep infections because their parents jobs have been outsourced to China and Wal Mart doesn't provide health insurance to its less than full time employees.

It is truly unfortunate to hear so many kids are without health insurance. I hope there can be a solution to this problem.
