Statement: Health Care Advocates Laud Perdue’s Veto as “Refreshing”
NC Health Access Coalition says the veto shows Gov. Perdue is “focused on a better future for North Carolinians” instead of “engaging in political games”

RALEIGH (March 5, 2011) — In a statement issued this afternoon, the NC Health Access Coalition lauded Gov. Beverly Perdue’s veto of an ill-conceived anti-health care bill.

The statement reads:

“For those concerned about jobs and affordable health insurance, Governor Perdue’s action in vetoing House Bill 2 is refreshing.

Instead of engaging in political games about “repealing” federal laws, the Governor’s eyes are firmly focused on a better future for North Carolinians. The Governor’s vision is of a North Carolina where insurance companies can no longer deny people health coverage because of pre-existing health conditions, where tax credits and a newly competitive market make insurance affordable and cost less, and where small businesses can finally get the same deals on health coverage plans that large companies enjoy.”

    Not having insurance would just be completely crazy. I am an accountant and in my local area Wise Health Insurance is the best health insurance finder I ever had. Yes my insurance does cover dental and eye insurance which is a big help to my life.

    It is clear that Perdue is NOT listening to the voters of Vorth Carolina. She is using the veto as a tool to throw down the wishes of the tax payers of North Carolina.. She will hear again from the voters of NC the next election.
    She will be fired for listening to washington and ignoring the people of NC.
