40 percent of low-income Americans have no health insurance
One-third of the un-insured have a chronic disease; they are six times less likely to receive health-care services than those with insurance.
Equal opportunity? Can they compete, on the job, with people who have health care and aren’t sick?
I’ll bet you know someone (I sure do) who’s un-insured, who goes to work in chronic pain, and who dares not get help. They can’t risk a “pre-existing condition” label that might make them un-insurable later.
