CDC: Number Of Uninsured Adults Rises

2 Million More Americans Joined Ranks Of Uninsured In 2006, Report Says

(AP) The number of adults without health insurance jumped by 2 million from 2005 to 2006, according to a new federal report.

Uninsured Americans numbered 43.6 million last year, a 6 percent increase from 2005, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Almost all the increase was in the non-elderly adult population — a trend attributed to diminishing employer coverage and pricier private insurance.

What exactly does it take to convince people that the system is not just broken, but on a freakin' respirator?

Let's see if "Sicko" opening this weekend puts any more of a spotlight on this despicable situation.
