(DEBIASI):
"RIGHT NOW, MORE THAN 400-THOUSAND HARD-WORKING VIRGINIANS DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE HEALTH-INSURANCE COVERAGE.  THEY MAY HAVE LOST THEIR JOBS, OR ARE STRUGGLING IN JOBS WITHOUT HEALTH-BENEFITS.  THEY ARE OUR FRIENDS, NEIGHBORS, [AND] FAMILY WHO HAVE PAID IN ALL THEIR LIVES--BUT ARE NOW STRUGGLING TO MAKE ENDS MEET.  THE STATE-LEGISLATURE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE, BY PASSING THE SENATE-PLAN TO EXPAND AFFORDABLE HEALTH-COVERAGE.  THE PLAN WOULD HELP HUNDREDS-OF-THOUSANDS OF VIRGINIANS WHO MAKE UP TO 15-THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR--INCLUDING 62-THOUSAND RESIDENTS WHO ARE 50 TO 64 YEARS OLD.  BY EXPANDING AFFORDABLE HEALTH-COVERAGE, THESE VIRGINIANS WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO PREVENTATIVE CARE THAT NOT ONLY SAVES LIVES--BUT [ALSO] WOULD EASE DANGEROUS AND EXPENSIVE EMERGENCY-ROOM OVERCROWDING.
