Feingold says Janesville would benefit from public health care
U.S. Senator Russ Feingold (D-Wis) uses Janesville as an example as he makes his case for a public health insurance option.
"A public health insurance option would be invaluable to families in Janesville and other parts of the state who have recently been laid off, because it is a guaranteed, affordable option that can travel with an individual from job to job," Feingold said.
"A public health insurance option would also make a tremendous difference to our small business owners who face crippling health care costs while trying to keep their businesses open."
Feingold made his comments during a speech Thursday from the Senate floor.
