It is good news that we are finally talking about healthcare in our state. Healthcare is an area riddled with market failures and a crucial area of spending in the average families budget.

I congragulate our governor for deciding to take on this issue. I hope the legislature doesn't try to play politics with this issue and seriously tries to solve our healthcare problem.
