I believe our state government should do everything it can to support affordable healthcare for all it’s citizens.  I live in Cook County, but not in chicago.  I live in the south-west suburbs.  Because I do not have health insurance I have to recieve healthcare from the county facilities.  The nearest County hospital is Oak Forrest.  Oak Forrest hospital does not have a gynocology department so if I have health issues in that area I have to travel all the way to Stroger Hospital in Chicago.  This is true of many women in this area, all who do not have healthcare.
