I invite you to join me from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday at Lorain County Community College in the Spitzer Conference Center (Grand Room) as I convene an open discussion about accessible and affordable healthcare in the first of seven Listening Tours. The Listening Tour is a statewide series of public forums that Ohio Senate Democrats will host to unveil our legislative vision through a comprehensive Economic Security Agenda. The Listening Tour will discuss legislative approaches to spur job creation, provide quality health care, advance clean-coal technology, reduce crime, invest in our urban neighborhoods and end foreclosure. As the only practicing health care provider in the General Assembly, I understand that affordable and accessible health care is a top priority for Ohioans. However, rising costs are a serious barrier to quality care. To ensure that our state is a great place to live, work and raise a family, we must find viable options to make our health care system more affordable for all families. Although positive steps have been made, much work remains. The health care issues our panel will address include access and affordability, the consequences of being uninsured and underinsured, medical debt, preventative care, Medicaid, disparities, the challenges facing rural and urban communities and strategies that can be taken at the legislative level to improve health care.

When I was at McDonald's recently, I sat at a table where I was able to observe young children swarming over the equipment in the large, colorful play area. As I observed, an older man, also observing, commented that he was jealous of those kids. "When I was a child, we had sticks to play with,' he said wistfully. He also said he wished he'd had one of those plastic "Big Wheel' riding toys when he was younger.
