Uninsured in America : new film by Stuart Browning

Uninsured in America is a short film by Stuart Browning profiling some of the people who make up the so-called uninsured in America. You can watch the film here. I highly recommend it. A couple of excerpts from the transcript:

According to the US Census Bureau, 17 million of those without health insurance live in households having over $50,000 in annual income. That's 38% of the uninsured in America.(2)

In fact, 9 million - 20% of the uninsured - reside in households pulling down more than $75K a year. (3)

Hat tip to Dr.Helen.

All those uninsured better be careful what they wish for - if some politicians have their way this is what the future could look like.
