Millions of Floridians Without Health Insurance

A new report released recently by Families USA reveals that a staggering 5.8 million Floridians were without health insurance at some point during the period of 2007 to 2008. Of those millions, more than half were without insurance for better than six months at a stretch. This represents a major problem with the system when roughly 35% of the state’s population goes without insurance for any length of time. Part of what’s scary about these figures is that many of these people are employed and well above the poverty level. Also disturbing is the large percentage of children included in these figures. What seems to be the case is that health insurance has gotten so expensive that even people with jobs cannot afford it, or if they can afford it for themselves, cannot afford it for their families. Will the changes Obama hopes to bring about spell an end to this problem?
