On September 12, the Census Bureau released data on health insurance coverage and the uninsured. The data show a decline in the percentage of uninsured American from 16.3 percent in 2010 to 15.7 percent last year. Young adults (19-25) were the age group that experienced the greatest decline in the percentage without insurance over the past year, from 29.8% in 2010 to 27.7% in 2011.

"The Affordable Care Act is already helping millions of young adults obtain and maintain private health insurance coverage," said Rep. Levin. "Today's Census data show in real terms millions of Americans are at risk of losing the coverage they have if the Republican repeal efforts are successful."
