1 in 4 Adults Say Family Member Lost Health Coverage: Zogby poll

More than a quarter of U.S. adults report that at least one member of their immediate family lost health insurance coverage within the past year, a new poll reveals.

Low-income families, those whose household earning is $35,000 and less, and young adults, ages 18-29 years old, are the most likely to have lost their health coverage, according to the Zogby Interactive poll. Thirty-seven and 35 percent of people in each group, respectively, lost coverage.

In households earning $100,000 or more, about one in five families said they also had an immediate family member lose coverage in the past year.

2. and had Bush at 29% May 08, BEFORE the Deregulation Disaster! Obama's rating was due to Democrats
frustration with Obama's naivete in trying get cooperation (in doing what was right for the country) with the AMerican Taliban.

"President Barack Obama's job approval rating is down to 42%, with a decline in approval from Democrats the leading factor."

Democrats have been getting frustrated with Obama's tendency to placate the Corporate Lobbyist party ..e.g. compromising the Stimulus Bill by giving the Party of Chaos TAX CUTS, which everyone knows during a depression WILL NOT stimulate job growth ... as people losing their jobs and houses are going to use any tax cuts mostly to pay down debt. It makes perfect sense for people to do this, but it doesn't stimulate job growth. Thus, the Corporate Lobbyist party was able to cut down the size of the Stimulus bill which they lately have been crowing about being too small!

Democrats feel Obama is much too inclined to try to reason with and come to agreement with the Party of Chaos which only wants to see him and the Democrats fail at fixing the economy (to give one example) that was nearly destroyed and almost driven into a Great Depression II by the Corporate Lobbyists party economic policies of Government being Missing in Action.

Most Democrats feel you can't try to shake hands in agreement with somebody whose holding a bomb in his. Republicans are only too happy to sacrifice the American economy and way of life (witness the Rape of Democracy in 2000) for power. Corporate Fuedalism has failed but the Party of Chaos doesn't feel it's finished it's job of trashing the United States of America in the interest of Government for the Corporations, (owned) by the Corporations and of the Corporations (John Robert's plans to grant Corporations the "Right" of "free speech" soon. So they will be free to spend unlimited amouonts of money in campaigns to drown out the competing views. This quite simply will bring an end to democracy in America.).
