ALBANY, GA (WALB) - People all over the country are talking about it, the debate over health care reform has a lot them fire up.

Many small business people are keeping an especially close eye on that debate.

Flint Community Bank provides coverage to about twenty employees through a larger network, but managers say every year they take a look at that plan to make sure they're getting their money's worth.

They're anxious to learn how health care reform might affect them.

"Of course we're watching that very closely of course. I don't think anyone knows all the details yet, we've got to look at what we can do as a cooperation to get the most bang for our buck," Leonard Thomas, Flint Community Bank CFO

Parts of the health care reform plan have passed several congressional committees, but it won't come up for a vote in the House or Senate until after Congress returns from its summer recess.
