8 million U.S. children without health insurance

Eight Million U.S. Children Now Have No Health Insurance

New census data shows the number of American children without
health insurance has increased for the first time since 1998.
Over 8 million children lacked health insurance coverage last
year. Experts attributed the change to budget crunches that led
some states to curtail enrollment of children in government-
subsidized plans and steady declines in the number of people who
receive health insurance through their jobs.
