U.S. healthcare system in a sickly state

The current state of our healthcare system in this country is terrible. 41.6 million people currently do not have health insurance in this country. 16.6 % of this state does not have health insurance and this number will continue to climb with the current republican policies that move jobs out of the country. Most Americans get their health insurance from their employer and under the current Republican leadership thousands of jobs have left this country. Also, the 2000 census reports that 7.7 % of low-income children in this country have no health insurance at all. How can we live in a country where we do not adequately provide health coverage for those who do not control their own destiny? We need to change the Congress so we can change these problems in America! -- John Murphy
