According to a new report from the Census Bureau, released by the Associated Press, New Mexicans are increasingly without medical insurance. Of course Gov. Bill Richardson says this underscores the need for health care reforms.
And while that may be true, it is also true that many New Mexicans do not take advantage of the programs that are already currently available.
According to the report, slightly more than one in five New Mexicans lack health insurance and nearly that many live in poverty.
