ANA Nurses Stand With Obama in Calling for Healthcare Reform Now
Date:7/15/2009

Nation's 'Most Trusted Profession' Adds to Momentum at White House Event

SILVER SPRING, Md., July 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Nurses Association (ANA) members joined President Obama today at a White House press conference, sending a strong message to Congress that the country no longer can wait to reform health care as rising costs threaten the financial stability of families and their ability to access health care services.

In citing significant progress this week on health reform proposals in both the House and Senate and his pledge to "get this done," the president referred to the nation's 2.9 million nurses as a group that knows what must be done and how to get things moving in the right direction -- whether it's with their patients or policymakers who need a nudge.

ANA has long advocated for reforms that would result in guaranteed, affordable, high-quality health care for all, and views the recent progress on Capitol Hill as steps toward that goal. Along with President Obama, ANA believes that health reform legislation should include a public health insurance plan option to provide broader choice for patients, increase affordability, foster marketplace competition and ensure access to services.

"As a nation, we cannot continue in good conscience to allow families to go bankrupt or people to suffer with health problems unnecessarily because they can't afford treatment, are denied health care, and lack basic coverage or private insurance," said ANA President Rebecca M. Patton, MSN, RN, CNOR, who appeared with President Obama. "Along with private insurance market reforms, the choice of a public health insurance plan option would provide millions of individuals and families what they want most -- access to affordable health care when they need it."
