Florida and Texas lead the nation in uninsured citizens, but balk at Obamacare coverage

September 5, 2013

A new Census Bureau report shows that Florida has a higher percentages of people without health insurance than most of the country. Only Texas has a higher percentage of people under the age of 65 without insurance. Remarkably both states have balked at providing coverage for their uninsured citizens under the Affordable Care Act, known as “Obamacare.”

Florida has 24.8 percent of its people without health insurance. Of the uninsured, 47 percent are women, 18 percent African-American and 13.5 percent are under the age of 19.

Maybe if we give every uninsured person a gun when they sign up for coverage, the NRA, Rep. Mike Hill and Sen. Greg Evers will support it.
