One-in-four Californians lack health insurance

To be filed in the "depressing-but-true" category, a study out of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research shows that more than 8 million (or one in four) California residents lack health insurance. It also shows the number of uninsured jumped 28 percent between 2007 and 2009 - likely due, according to the report, to high levels of unemployment during that time. From Reuters:

"We expected to see some increase, certainly, but one of this magnitude was quite surprising," Shana Alex Lavarreda, one of the study's authors, [said].
