Consider, for instance, the following:
As of 2005, nearly 41 percent of Americans lacked health coverage;
More than half of Americans making less than $20,000 a year have no health insurance.;
Nearly 60% of Americans who were uninsured and have chronic conditions skip their medications or go without them because they were too expensive.
Our system isn't only broken, it's horribly broken. We're the wealthiest country in the world and we've failed and continue to fail our citizens when it comes to healthcare.
