Health Care Proposals "Overdue" for NH Presidential Campaigns

August 3, 2007

Congressman Kucinich's office in Keene can expect a visit from health care voters today. Representatives of New Hampshire for Health Care are presenting overdue notices to campaigns that have not released prescriptions for universal health care coverage, and delivering thank you notes to the campaigns that have. Ken Roos of the State Employees Association is a New Hampshire for Health Care member. He was at the Edwards and Obama offices yesterday, and he says the group will keep raising the issue until candidates come up with solutions.

"The message is getting out, and we're not going to stop. We still are pushing for all the candidates to continue talking the importance of quality healthy care for all."

On the Democratic side, Congressman Kucinich, Sens. Biden, Dodd, Edwards, and Obama, and Gov. Richardson have responded. Of the Republicans, only Mayor Giuliani has released a plan, although the group says it does not address how to pay for universal coverage. Sen. Clinton's campaign says a plan is coming.

Roos notes that health care will be a key issue in the New Hampshire primary because it's on the minds of working people across the nation.

"Health care is a very significant issue, and more people are needing to participate in the cost of the health care coverage and finding it very costly."
