National Health Care Roundtable

July 13th, 2009 by flanews

The state Democratic Party is making a case for health care reform.

The Florida Democrats held a round table discussion in Tallahassee this afternoon to hear from people who have had a hard time getting medical attention. The Florida Democrats are recording the stories. Party Chairwoman Karen Thurman said the stories will be given to elected officials to urge them to pass legislation to reform the national health care system.

These discussions will go back to our Florida legislators with our numbers with the stories. While there are some people that are not here today we have been collecting stories. We pass those on to legislators across the state and our congress members to make sure that they see the face to this issue and not just the numbers because sometimes that is harder to understand than when you hear a story and talk about a real life person out there, said Sheldon.

45 million Americans dont have access to health care; four million of those are Floridians.
