Miss Me Yet?

According to a recent Gallup Poll, the number and percentage of Americans without health insurance has steadily increased since 2008.

In 2008, when George W. Bush was president, according to Gallup, 14.9 percent of adult residents of the United States lacked health insurance coverage. That increased to 16.2 percent in 2009, the year that Obama was inaugurated, and to 16.4 percent in 2010, the year that Obama signed his law requiring that all Americans have health insurance.

In the first half of this year, according to data released by Gallup today, the percentage of adults in the United States lacking health insurance ticked up to 16.8 percent.

We know the current administration likes to blame Bush for all that is wrong. Wonder how they will spin this?

Reminds me of those billboards with a picture of "W".
