How many have health insurance in US?

In the United States approximately 2/3 of the population has health insurance. Only about 20% of those uninsured do not qualify for private insurance. Most states have formed Health Insurance Risk Pools that will insure these individuals. Te democrats keep telling us that health insurance is unattainable or not affordable. That is not true. Most people can afford health insurance the instead decide to buy that extra car or plasma television or weekend home. I agree with Mrs. Clinton's proposal on some points. Health insurance should be made mandatory. In doing that they will have to force companies to take everyone that applies. It will change the way people view their health. I think it will be as helpful as mandatory liability auto insurance. There are many sites a person can go and get competitive quotes for health insurance.
