Minnick: Stand for Main St., Not K St.


That's the message for Rep. Walt Minnick on healthcare reform from a group of Idaho small businesses. They rally tomorrow on Idaho insurance row:

“Small businesses need real health reform so we can do our part for economic recovery,” said Michaile Metro, Idaho small business owner. “The insurance companies and their lobbyists are trying to hijack reform so they can keep padding their profits at our expense. We can't afford to let that happen. We need real reform — including the choice of a public option, true affordability, and a reasonable employer contribution that spreads the costs of health care fairly.”

The group, the Idaho Main Street Alliance, will rally in front of Regence Blue Shield of Idaho, 1211 W Myrtle, at noon tomorrow.
