According to the White House’s director of intergovernmental affairs, many Latinos stand to be positively impacted by health insurance reform.
Why? Cecilia Munoz claims that 14 million Hispanics in America are currently uninsured. 60% of them, or nine million, will be able to find affordable health insurance. This is largely due to the subsidies for lower-income individuals and families.
Moreover, that number does not include undocumented immigrants (a significant percentage of whom are Latino), who are not covered under the legislation.
