Perdue unveils health care plan for uninsured Georgians

August 7, 2007

ATLANTA, Ga.---Today, Gov. Sonny Perdue announced a major new health care plan for uninsured Georgians called the Health Insurance Partnership for Georgia.

Under the plan, there will be affordable health care options for small business owners and employees. The plan also allows small employers to join a private insurance plan and offer employees coverage options similar to the health care options given to workers at larger employers. Small businesses can voluntarily join the program.

The cost of the insurance plan will be shared by the employee, employer and a combination of state and federal funds.

The program will be available next year.

    The other night the sports announcer made a comment about Jimmy Johnson and his grammar. I felt that it was unnecessary. The man was excited and probably tire as well. He was just trying to get thru the media and get home. I just wonder how good one of you would have responded after winning a race like that under pressure. I am not a race fan but I thought the comment was uncalled for. Thank you Sandra W
