The plan is extra topical—the uninsured includes persons who aren’t impoverished The Buckeye Institute 03 (“Wealthy Fastest Growing Segment of Uninsured Population” http://www.buckeyeinstitute.org/article/725 It is often assumed that an inability to afford insurance is the primary reason for not possessing any. The Census numbers show the uninsured coming from a broad spectrum of incomes. In fact, the greatest increase in the uninsured took place among the wealthiest Americans, while the least wealthy actually experienced a decline. Among those with incomes greater than $75,000, the number of uninsured rose 114 percent. Those with incomes between $50,000 and $75,000 rose 57 percent, those with incomes between $25,000 and $50,000 rose 17 percent, and for those with incomes below $25,000, the number of uninsured fell by 17 percent.
