New Health Insurance

More than 15% of residents in Winnebago County do not have health insurance but there may be a prescription to fix that.

One of Governor Blagojevich's health care advocates was in Rockford today plugging the governor's new affordable health care plan.

Business owner Jerry Minor of Loves Park says he struggles with high health care premiums and any help would be welcome. However, the governor's health care plan has plenty of critics. Blagojevich proposes paying for it by hiking taxes including a new tax on business transactions and a new payroll tax.
