Conference today effort to give people the choice in Affordable Health Care
LAFAYETE (KADN) — Lafayette City-Parish Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux and leaders in the faith community joined advocates for people with disabilites today, all in an effort to encourage the legislative delegation to support the opportunity for people to decide whether we should expand access to affordable health care and protect Louisiana's hospitals and health services.
"We need to get people affordable health care. We need to get people who are dealing with common colds and normal illnesses out of our emergency rooms. When we get this in place we will drive the cost of health care down as opposed to the rising costs that we currently experience," says Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux.
After Governor Jindal chose not to accept the Affordable Health Care Act, community leaders spoke asking legislators to step in and give people the chance to have a choice in whether we should expand medicaid.
