Children losing health insurance

So says a new report. The loss of health insurance is particularly acute in the under-5 demographic. This is the direct result of budget cutbacks in recent years that has caused many people to lose eligibility for Minnesota Care and Medical Assistance.

While conservatives may rail against lazy, unemployed adults who don't deserve health care (we'll leave the question of the accuracy of such stereotypes alone for now), who can argue that children don't deserve health insurance? Just more casualties of the Pawlenty budget priorities, I guess.
