Universal health bill legislation

U.S. Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA, 13th) commented on new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau showing the number of Americans without health insurance grew by 860,000 from 2003 to 2004. There are now 45.8 million Americans without health insurance; 6.7 million in California alone.

Representative Stark, a long-time proponent of universal health coverage, has recently offered legislation to provide health insurance to every American child under the age of 23. This year Stark also introduced a Constitutional Amendment making health insurance a right for all Americans.
