Supporters of public option rally in Melville
Long Island residents in favor of a public health care option took to the streets Tuesday as part of statewide show of support for reform.
Rallies like the one held in Melville were also held in Buffalo, Albany, Binghamton and New York City. Participants say they want a public health care option because private health care is expensive and can be unreliable.
?My primary care physician has become the emergency room,? says Carol Gordon, of Massapequa.
Don Schampier, of the Conservative Society for Action, says he?s for health care reform but that government involvement will only worsen the situation.
