NC group in on health debate

It's not just the big national groups, like the Democratic National Committee and Americans for Prosperity, who are weighing in on the national health care debate.

Another group making it’s presence felt in the health care debate is the North Carolina Health Access Coalition, Rob Christensen reports.

The non profit advocacy group has been holding meetings and round table discussions across the state trying to build public support for proposals in Congress to make health care more accessible.

With Congress expected to vote soon on President Barack Obama’s proposals, the group has held three dinner roundtables on national health reform for small business owners and workers in Durham, Pittsboro and Greensboro with seven to 18 owners at each in the last two months, according to Adam Searing, who heads the group.

It has also held several public forums discussing health reform including one planned next Thursday, July 23rd in Greenville.

Searing said his group has held meetings in Boone, Garner, Greensboro, Henderson, Morganton, and Wilmington, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, and Raleigh.

Re: NC group in on health debate

and then Parade magazine had the nerve to write that grassroots groups didnt really exist in America...Americans for Prosperity have called their bluff...look for a retraction!

EACH ONE should pay for HIS/HER OWN healthcare. Its NOT a function of our government, NOR a right in our Constitution.
