Had Romney been elected, the number significantly shoots up to 72 million uninsured.
Orange, California (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Before 2011, more than 50 million Americans were without health insurance. That’s more than 50 million Americans that either had significant medical debt or felt threatened by it.
Then, it dropped to a little over 48 million in 2011, according to the US Census Bureau. While the numbers of threatened people dropped, it’s still too high.
Having health insurance is like having a warm security blanket, that everyone should have the luxury of. That’s the thinking behind the newly re-elected administration, at least.
Thanks to Obama’s recent victory in the White House, he hopes to see his dream of all Americans carrying health insurance come to fruition.
And while many are upset by Mitt Romney’s loss, there are numbers that say otherwise.
A recent poll by the Commonwealth Fund exposes astonishing statistics that predict the numbers of consumers that would be without health care coverage with the election of the opponent versus the re-election of the President.
By 2022, the prediction is that the numbers of consumers without coverage will drop to 27 million (by almost half the current number), but had Romney been elected, the number significantly shoots up to 72 million uninsured.
That’s possibly 72 million Americans living with medical debt or in fear of it.
While many US residents are leery of the new health insurance requirements, many are doing what they can to obtain the coverage they need.
