Florida, Palm Beach

"WHEREAS, the failure to provide affordable and appropriate health care services places unnecessary and more costly demands upon Palm Beach County’s and America’s emergency health care services, AND WHEREAS, health care reform will ensure that those who now have health care will be able to keep their coverage and control their costs, AND WHEREAS, all insurance companies should be accredited in a similar fashion to the process used for approval of plansfor participation in the Federal
Employees' Plan,
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Palm Beach County Democratic Party urges Congress to fully consider all models and proposed systems in the formation of strong, universal, affordable, health care reform. Further, we hope that all expediency will be utilized in bringing effective, national health care to all Americans. "
This is written as how it is currently proposed and has no date on it, but can be reached through the title.
Florida comes in THIRD in the nation for UnInsured.

Here are the Stats:
"According to a 2005 U.S. Census Bureau Study, Florida ranks third in the nation for highest number of uninsured among the states. California is ranked first followed by Texas. The study found that there are 3.6 million uninsured in Florida. Thus, 20.2% of the state’s 18.1 million people are without health insurance."
