Edward Kennedy's long-awaited healthcare overhaul bill, American Health Choices Act, to be introduced, a bipartisan group of city, county, and state officials will join together with leaders from Borinquen Health Care Center, Jackson Memorial Hospital and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Florida to lend support for comprehensive healthcare reform that includes a high quality and affordable public health insurance option.
