Percentage Uninsured in the U.S by Quarter

From Vox: America’s uninsured rate appears to have leveled off at 13.4 percent since Obamacare’s open enrollment ended, new Gallup data showed Thursday.

The uninsured rate for the last quarter of 2013 was 17.1 percent. That means there’s been a 22 percent drop over the last five months in people who lack health insurance coverage.

Rent On The Rise In Riverside

My staff and I looked into rising rents in Riverside County and found that one in three renters is paying more than fifty percent of their income toward rent, all while wages are still below 2007 levels. We also discovered that the number of people paying more than half of their income on rent in Riverside County is rising faster than other Southern California counties. 

There are things we can do to help. Read my report “Rents on the Rise in Riverside” to see my recommendations.
