As middle class struggles to stay afloat, the number of uninsured Americans is still growing

The Cox News Service reports: "More Americans are working for companies that don't offer health insurance plans, two reports released Thursday concluded. One report found that the percentage of the population with employer-sponsored insurance continued to drop despite an upturn in the economy. Another report found that about three-fourths of the decline in coverage was due to a lack of employers offering it or ineligibility."

The Nation's Barbara Ehrenreich has more on the "quiet erosion of the Middle Class", not withstanding our incredible economy.

Check out both articles, as well as the study referenced in the first article by the Kaiser Family Foundation that discusses the growing uninsurace crisis in America.
