Unemployment and Health Care

Connect the dots.

Today's NY Times...

The unemployment rate in March for workers age 45 and over was 6.4 percent, the highest since at least 1948, when the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking unemployment on a monthly basis.

But once older workers lose their jobs, Dr. Munnell said, “then it’s horrible.” They have a much harder time finding work again than younger job-seekers, and statistics appear to show that it is harder for them in this recession than previous ones.

Even if these people find employment the odds of having decent health insurance are not good.
Anyone think unemployed people don't need health care? Just asking.

John, everyone needs health insurance, the problem is that socialists like yourself would like the working man and woman in the USA to pay for all of the bums and illegal aliens health care. You and Obama would love to bankrupt this great country. Hell, let's just open up the borders and let everyone in!

What a happy surprise!
My site has so little traffic that even spam comments are few and far between. But trolls is another story. I thought there were no more anonymous trolls left.
Thanks for your concern.
