Poor and uninsured are two categories you don’t want to see increase over the course of year. But in the U.S., the number of people living in poverty and the number of people without health insurance have both increased for three straight years. Last year alone, 1.3 million people fell into poverty and 1.4 million people were added to the list of those without health insurance.
I’m not sure there is a good way to spin these numbers. Maybe we need an ad from a group called Poor and Uninsured Americans for Truth?
