With white signs that read “Insure Idaho!” about 150 Idahoans rallied
over rising health and prescription drug costs, the increasing burden on
small business owners and the plight of the uninsured.
“Insurance is a necessity, not a luxury,” activist Jesus Torres told the crowd.
The rally kicked off what backers described as a new community alliance for affordable health care that will push for “transparency, integrity and accountability.”
