Representative Rita Day sponsored the bill that entitles all Missourians to health care.

She says the bill puts medical decisions back into the hands of the patients and their doctors, instead of insurance companies.

She says that means health care for everyone.

Contents: Day says the attempts of the past have failed and now it's time to provide all with health care.

If passed, the bill would raise citizens' taxes and create a publicly-financed health insurance program. From the state capital, I'm Tammara Porter.
