NH Challenge: "Walk a Day in My Shoes"

February 1, 2007

As Presidential candidates set their sights on New Hampshire, they can't help but see a challenge written on the wall. Billboards and posters are going up today, challenging candidates to "walk a day in my shoes" - literally spend a day at work and at home with an average New Hampshire worker. State Employees' Association president Gary Smith says those trying to get elected need to try to understand regular working folks, who are the majority of Americans.

"(Candidates should) hear their concerns about health care, retirement security, wages that don't keep pace with the rate of inflation. (They should)experience their lives and they live them.

Ken Roos is an administrator with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services. He says health coverage should be the biggest topic for candidates.

"We've got one of the best health plans in the nation, and we realize how expensive it is. Why are the costs increasing so much? Why can't we have a national health insurance program?"
