Chart: Health reform is good for you

Yesterday, Census news that record numbers of Americans are poor and that more of them are going without health insurance. Today, rescued by Jonathan Cohn at the New Republic, news from the same Census report that fewer young adults are uninsured -- half a million fewer.

Cohn asks whether this is evidence that "Obamacare" could already be working, since it allows people 26 and under to stay on their parents' insurance policies. Followup question: Could Democrats convert this graph into votes?
