Blunt told reporters after a Wednesday discussion at a Jefferson City hospital that the focus now should be on addressing concerns with the health care overhaul law.
The visit to the Jefferson City hospital was one of several stops planned this week to speak with health care workers across Missouri. Blunt says he wants feedback on Democratic President Barack Obama’s health care law.
Blunt says he’s interested in hearing about the impact on rural hospitals. He also noted interest in how the overhaul has affected urban hospitals, which he says might have high numbers of patients with health insurance or those on Medicaid.
