Sen. Mitch McConnell visits Eastern Kentucky, including Eula Hall Health Center

FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Senator Mitch McConnell made four stops Friday afternoon in the Big Sandy Region.

Discussions focused on what McConnell says are the two main issues Kentuckians are facing; coal and healthcare.

The Senator visited Paul B. Hall Regional Medical Center, Worldwide Equipment, and Appalachian Wireless.

He also made a stop to visit healthcare pioneer, Eula Hall, at her clinic in Grethel.

"She's devoted her life to healthcare for low income people and I wanted to stop in and get an update on how she is doing while I am in Floyd County. Also, to see how she feels about Obamacare," says McConnell.

Hall says it is a big day for her small community having a United States Senator in town."

"It is not very often you have a senator here in town...taking time to listen to us and seeing what we are doing here. Seeing is believing," she says. Hall then says to Sen. McConnell, "So, when you have to meet up and talk about healthcare remember what we do here and what we do to meet the people's needs. It's a hard job and it is a big job."
