money.cnn.com — In an effort to cast health care reform as helpful to more Americans, President Obama on Saturday pounded home a new statistic: Nearly 50% of people under 65 have gone without coverage for at least one month over a decade.

"It can happen to anyone," Obama said in his weekly address. "In the United States of America, no one should have to worry that they'll go without health insurance - not for one year, not for one month, not for one day. And once I sign my health reform plan into law - they won't."

The new figure comes from a Treasury Department analysis of survey data collected by the University of Michigan. The data tracked health insurance coverage through phone interviews with some 17,000 individuals from 1997 to 2006.

Insurance companies are cherry picking and ripping us off. Senior citizens don't give a shit since they are not paying premiums

It is my opinion that many Americans without insurance don't have their priorities straight. I see a lot of people who can afford health insurance who choose to spend their money on other things that are not a necessity.
