Kansas healthcare forums find disconnect between residents, lawmakers
Kansas City Star, June 18, 2008
A series of three eight-hour discussions focusing on healthcare reform showed that 88% of the participants put a high priority on all Kansas residents having some health insurance coverage. The forums also turned up strong support for preventive healthcare, for funding those costs through taxes, and for making sure everyone has a health professional who would oversee the person's healthcare. Each of the three discussions included about 30 people who were asked to consider different approaches to healthcare reform.
