Everyone Deserves Access to Health Care

    1. Sponsored by

      American Heart Association Arizona

It is estimated that 59.1 million people had no health insurance at some point during 2010. Unfortunately, the amount of individuals without access to health care has continued to rise over the past decade. Not having access to affordable health care can cause individuals to postpone or even skip routine visits that are often essential to maintaining healthy living. 

Recently, Governor Brewer proposed a plan to restore Medicaid coverage to its original pre-approved status as well as expand coverage to more than 63,000 low-income Arizonans. Her plan demonstrates true leadership in the fight against heart disease and stroke which are the #1 and #4 killers of Americans, respectively. The Governor’s plan has the potential to eliminate barriers for the proper diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of chronic diseases like heart disease and stroke.

      I'm not even a constituent nor Arizonian, yet I care more about them and their livelihoods than their own government. Pathetic.
