Universal Health Care

March 19th, 2009 by flanews

State Democrats are calling on congress for universal health care.

Florida lawmakers are joining the Florida Alliance of Retired Americans to urge congress to act quickly. Nearly 4 million Floridians don’t have health insurance. State Senator Dave Aronberg said children are paying the price.

“Working people should be able to find a doctor for their sick child. Who could argue for that? Every family should have a family doctor and that’s what this is about. This is about making sure we control health care cost, because right now the health care system is dependant on emergency rooms’ for basic health care,” said Aronberg.

More than half of all people who filed for bankruptcy say medical bills drained their bank accounts.
