Kentucky, Wake County, ( click title)

"WHEREAS, The Declaration of Independence states that the right to life is an inalienable right, it follows that proper, timely and affordable healthcare is essential to securing that right; and

WHEREAS, The failure of the private, for profit healthcare system to secure this right for the American people is of such a scale as to require the intervention of the government to protect the right to life,

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the Wake County Democratic Party calls on Congress to approve legislation now before it (H.R. 676) establishing a single payer universal healthcare system in the United States."

More information about the UnInsured in Kentucky, which is based on 2003 stats. This study also shows how many homes have atleast one non working adult,and yet the other problem is that small businesses in Ky do not supply healthcare if they have less than 20 Employees, so that means many working poor have no access to any insurance. Of the total of 517,000 , 12% of people 30-49 are UnInsured, and 28% of 19 to 30 years are uninsured. So in this state many that are working remain uninsured.So 18% Under 64 are uninsured. These numbers are based on stats gathered before 2006, so we don't know what the numbers are now.
