Rep. Castor's response to Obama's health care speech

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, issued the following in response to President Barack Obama's health care speech Wednesday evening:
“Health insurance reform is vital to Florida families and businesses. The status quo is not working for too many of my neighbors and is too expensive. We need to bring competition to lower costs for our hard-working families and make insurance available to many more. No longer will insurance companies be able to deny you coverage if you get sick, they won't be able to charge you higher premiums because of medical history or current illness, if you change jobs, you can carry your policy with you, and you won’t have to pay co-pays or deductibles for preventative care. And if you like your health insurance, you can keep it.”
