Democratic State Senator Curren Price says over the next few years, the Affordable Care Act could mean more primary and quality care for more than two million black Californians.
PRICE: "It's going to help level the playing field, and ultimately eliminate some of the nagging health disparities."
Darcel Lee of the California Black Health Network says African-Americans are more likely to die from cancer than any other ethnic group. And blacks use the emergency room for care more than whites.
LEE: "Our numbers are so critical and so crucial that when we're helped by programs like the ACA, everybody else gets helped as well."
