Frighteningly High Numbers of Uninsured in California

For one of the most “progressive” states in many respects, California still suffers a problem plaguing much of the nation today, namely health care. Analysis of recent Census Bureau data shows that more than 1 in 3 California citizens went without health insurance at some point over the last two years. The majority of these people belonged to working families and were without health insurance for at least a six month period. The bulk of these individuals were latino, folowed by blacks, and then a smaller percentage of whites. The numbers indicate that working minorities are especially susceptible to being without health insurance. Do you think that these numbers are due do a lack in public programs to assist these people, or are these people perhaps unaware of assistance they may qualify for?
