Skyrocketing health care costs remain a pivotal discussion nationwide.This year our delegate, Tony Wilt, championed legislation that would make it easier for small businesses and sole proprietors to band together under an association health plan. These plans offer a lower-cost option to small-business owners and their employees where no affordable option currently exists for these individuals in the marketplace. Democrats and Republicans supported the idea, as affordable health care is not a partisan issue.
It saddens me to think that I have friends and colleagues that go without health care because they simply can't afford it. That's why Virginia Realtors was supportive of Tony's bill and why they have enthusiastically endorsed him for his work in the legislature, and I encourage you to do the same as we near elections on Nov. 5.
