Healthcare march hopes to raise public awareness

As the healthcare reform debate continues across the country, nearly one-hundred people gathered in Wilmington Saturday to raise public awareness. Kay Zwan said every American should be able to get access to healthcare. She claims the American dream will be denied if the country does not reform the healthcare system. The group is targeting Blue Dog Democrats in Congress, including Congressman Mike McIntyre. The group is afraid the private insurance industry will destroy the house health care bill will loopholes. “We will not settle for anything else. So Congressman McIntyre, I hope you hear us now and Senator Kay Hagan we need you to vote on the side of the people and not the insurance industry,” said Zwan. The group walked from DC Virgo Middle School to the Martin Luther King Jr. Center on Eighth Street, all in the name of affordable healthcare for everyone.
