The organization's blog has some informative posts. One compares Obama and McCain's health care plans and is worth poking into. Obama's plan has been criticized as being more expensive, but that's because it covers more Americans, even those with existing conditions, such as cancer. As I have noted before, McCain does not cover those with existing conditions. The site links to an excellent Wall Street Journal article explaining the impact of the two candidates' plans. One difference the newspaper notes: Obama's plan would increase regulation. McCain's would decrease it. Interesting.
I have placed the group's pledge on the left column of my site. Vote to let the candidates know that quality health care is a priority. By signing, you also pledge to take the candidates' health care positions into consideration when voting.
While the economy is getting the attention this week, as well it should, health care cannot be ignored. The financial health of the country, yes, is of prime importance. The physical health, however, is equally important.
