Health insurance reform supporters rallied in Wilmington for their cause Tuesday afternoon. Members of the grassroots group Organizing for America held a news conference at Central Missionary Baptist Church. They spoke about a need for and support of change when it comes to health insurance in North Carolina. They say they also aim to dispel myths about the topic. The group walked to Congressman Mike McIntyre's office to hand over stacks of signatures supporting reform. "I have dedicated myself to seeing this cause succeed. Healthcare in my mind is a right, not a privilege," said Angela Everett. The Democratic National Committee created the group Organizing for America to spread the word about supporting President Obama's agenda at a grassroots level. While they focus on several issues, health insurance reform is currently front and center.
