Groups representing both sides of the health care debate gathered on the steps of the State Capitol in Lincoln share their views. In front of a group waving signs, State Senator Tony Fulton of Lincoln says the cost of a public option is just too high.
“If we can get a handle on costs, then we can get a handle on insurance. If we can bring health care costs down, health insurance costs will become more affordable such that we who are paying for it might be able to have health care through our insurance policies.”
On the other side of the debate, Jane Kleeb pointed out the cost of having 50 million uninsured is too high.
“And when it gets down to it, even in this bad economy, the only group that is making money is the insirance companies, and we’re saying it’s time to look at the system as a whole, look at the Government portions of it, look at the private portions of it, and let’s reform it so it works for everybody.”
Fulton says no matter how you feel about the health care debate – take time and read through the current proposal.
