    Where do people without health insurance live?

    Where Do Those Without Health Insurance Live? - Christopher di Spirito - Open Salon



    Those who lack health insurance now are far more likely to live in states that usually vote Republican the states whose senators and representatives are least likely to support healthcare reform and will undoubted choose to opt-out of a government run health insurance scheme. Denying heath insurance to the people they allegedly represent is a bedrock, conservative value.
    Interesting finding. It's also no coincidence that some of these states also have some of the lowest per capita incomes, lowest per pupil expenditures, and highest unemployment rates.

    The only time that I am aware of any conservative arguing that someone should be denied health care is if they cannot pay for it.

    Why should you receive goods and services that you cannot pay for?

    I was wondering about that myself. These poor heathens by all rights should have not survived.

    People without health insurance in part live in grad school. Can't afford that **** here (health insurance, not grad school...I suppose it's mostly one or the other).

    We typically pay our own bills with cash, is why.

    We don't expect insurance to pay for a yearly physical any more than we expect GEICO to pay for our gas.

    If we get a cold we take to MyQuil before heading off to work instead of taking a copy of Time with us to the ER.

    I've never been to concerned for working, able bodied adults who choose not to get coverage for a variety of reasons ... and the article doesn't really focus on them, anyway. The article says "those who don't have insurance" but it is ONLY citing numbers concerning CHILDREN who are not insured.

    The article says:
    For the first time, in a survey taken last year and released in September, over all it found that 9.9 percent of children lack any health insurance, half the rate for adults under 65.
    So with the availability of CHIP - which is available to all qualifying people IN the Middle Class (We're not even talking about people who are otherwise in the category of assistance through Medicaid/care/welfare) - and is available in every state - there's currently no excuse for children to be uninsured.

    With a program already implimented to cover middle-class children who were previously uninsured it's just pure laziness or a lack of concern for a child's wellbeing or maybe an overall lack of knowledge on the program that IS available to be blamed.

    From the CHIP website:
    Any adult who lives with an uninsured child and provides care for that child can apply. This includes parents, step-parents, grandparents, other relatives, legal guardians or adult brothers or sisters.
    For the Democrats to have pushed the program (which I fully supported) I think it's hypocritical to just ignore that it's there, fail to improve it, and then just start ANOTHER program and dissolve CHIP and absorb these children into the ACHAA - when these children who DO qualify for the CHIP *might NOT* qualify for coverage under ACHAA.

    It's a baseless issue - there IS coverage for most who are currently uninsured - and everyone's just ignoring it.

    All the while - the real issue at the heart of debate isn't about children not being covered, it's about adults not being covered - BIG difference. So you can't site statistics for children when making an arguement concerning adult-issues.
