Greene County Health Care Inc. To Receive 1.3 Million Dollar Grant

More than a million dollars in funding is coming to the east for health care.

Greene County Health Care Incorporated is receiving a 1.3 million dollar grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Democratic congressman G.K. Butterfield's office says the grant will be used to provide primary health care to under served populations in Greene and Pitt counties, as well as migrant and seasonal farm workers in five other adjacent counties.

The agency says nearly all the 95,000 people they served last year live below the poverty line.

        According to polls, 52% of Americans favor mandatory health insurance, up from 44% in June. The survey indicates that 47% oppose the health insurance mandate, down from 54% in early summer. The health insurance mandate has gained most support since June among older Americans and among lower-income Americans. A majority of independents opposed the measure in June, but 52 percent of them now favor it.
