President-Elect Barack Obama has made it clear that health care reform is one of his top priorities.
That’s why the Obama-Biden transition team is asking people to give their own thoughts and ideas how to fix the system at Health Care Community Discussions all across the country.
It will take all of us working together to tackle health care reform, and we are counting on Americans from every walk of life to get involved.
Fayette County Hospital and Long Term Care will host two community discussions, both on Thursday, Jan. 8.
The first discussion will be from 8:30-10 a.m., and the second discussion will be from 5:30-7 p.m. Both will be held in the hospital’s conference room.
“Providing quality affordable health care for all Americans is one of my top priorities for this country, because our long-term fiscal prospects will have a hard time improving as long as sky-rocketing health care costs are holding us all down,” said Obama.
“Yet, in order for us to reform our health care system, we must first begin reforming how government communicates with the American people.
“These health care community discussions are a great way for the American people to have a direct say in our health care reform efforts, and I encourage Americans to take part if they are able,” he said.
