50 million uninsured shows urgency of enacting single-payer Medicare for all: national doctors group

. . .

Among various population groups, the greatest loss of coverage was among working-age adults between the ages of 35 and 64, people with incomes below $49,999, and people with disabilities. Hispanics continue to disproportionately face uninsurance (30.7 percent), compared with blacks (20.8 percent), Asians (18.1 percent) and non-Hispanic whites (11.7 percent).

About 7.3 million children remain uninsured, the bureau said. Young people between the ages of 19 to 25 had a drop of 1.6 percentage points in their uninsurance rate, a figure the Census Bureau suggests is linked to the federal health law’s provision that allows dependent children to be covered under a parent’s health plan.

Lack of health insurance is known to have deadly consequences. A 2009 study in the American Journal of Public Health showed that 45,000 deaths annually can be linked to lack of coverage. Along the same lines, studies have shown that uninsured people with chronic illnesses like heart disease often delay or forgo care, often leading to serious complications of their medical condition and, in some cases, premature death.

. . .

So how does the pro-life party justify killing Americans who don't have health insurance? These doctors WANT single payer health care...like they have in France....and it brings down the debt a WHOLE bunch.

Why does it bring down the debt? Because the doctors would not be reacting to health care which is FOR PROFIT.

MEDICARE FOR ALL .. it is the answer, it always was.

No more corporate-written schemes designed to benefit health insurance companies disguised as healthcare "reform."

When unemployment goes up, the number of uninsured goes up... logical.
