Lending a helping hand is something that comes naturally for many of us. Western Pennsylvanians always help when we see a need; we continue to support organizations and programs across Pennsylvania to assist our most vulnerable. The Medicaid program is a perfect example of this. More than two-thirds of the Medicaid population is children, persons with disabilities and older adults. It is critical that we continue to support this program, but none of us can do it with a blank check.

Gov. Tom Corbett recognizes this. He recently unveiled his plan "Healthy Pennsylvania," with the idea that all Pennsylvanians should have access to affordable, quality health care. A major component of this plan is to reform Pennsylvania's Medicaid program. We must reform the program so it remains sustainable into the future, and Gov. Corbett gets it! His plan benefits all Pennsylvanians by delivering the care that they need, while keeping the burden off the taxpayers. Healthy PA encourages better care coordination for patients, providers and insurers and creates real health care choices for consumers.

I hope you will join me in support of Gov. Corbett as he works to ensure all Pennsylvanians have access to affordable, quality health care.
