Number of Newly Uninsured Americans Rises
PBS Newshour - Feb. 13, 2009:
As the numbers of laid-off workers are rising, so, too, are the ranks of those without health insurance. In all, more than 2 million Americans have been laid off in the last three months. Health correspondent Betty Ann Bowser went to Connecticut to see firsthand how all this is changing people's lives. Our Health Unit is a partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
If the Republicans honestly think the nation is going to rise up against Obama for adding a trillion to the debt under these circumstances, they are nuts, considering that Reagan and the 2 Bushes ran it up by 9 trillion in times that didn't demand such action.
