Health Care for Americans:
There are many Government Health Care programs available for low-income families. For more information on this click here. I know there are people out there whose income exceeds government guidelines yet can’t afford quality health insurance for their families. Being stuck in this position is very tough and sadly at times it seems the only answer is to find a second income or finding a new employer with more benefits.
Health and Hunger Facts:
The National Coalition on Health care states that nearly 90 million people below the age of 65 spent a portion of either 2006 or 2007 without health insurance coverage. Within the United states for 2006 it was reported that 35.5 million people were living in households which were considered to be food insecure. Of this number, 22.9 million were said to be adults and 12.6 million are children. The top ten states for food insecurity include Arizona, Arkansas, Kentuck, Louisiana, Utah, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and New Mexico.
