Governors’ Health Insurance Plan Passes Senate

April 17th, 2008 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist continues to tout his plan to make insurance reasonable for the states millions of uninsured. Tuesday Crists plan passed the Senate unanimously. Crist wants to provide insurance to Floridians ages 19 to 64, at cost as low as 150 dollars a month. The governor said his plan is about people not politics.

It doesnt matter if youre a Republican a Democrat or an Independent when the people give you the great honor of saying I want you to represent me, than what you told them in the course of a campaign is that you were going to go to Tallahassee and fight for them, then you damn sure better do it. Or you wont be back here, said Crist.

Crist plan faces its biggest test in the House, where some lawmakers want to change the health insurance plan.
