Health Care Press Conference

This morning I attended a press conference. It was the kick-off for a petition drive to amend the Michigan state constitution with language requiring the state legislature to provide affordable health care insurance. For the first time in a long time I heard the phrase, "This country can land a man on the Moon, we can provide affordable health care." I certainly hope both halves of that sentence can be proved true.

Currently, about $6,000 per person is spent on health care in Michigan. It should be interesting to watch the Michigan Legislature struggle over this one if it passes.
