Health Care, A Hot Topic Again?

July 8th, 2008 by flanews

A massive campaign aimed at making Heath Care the number one issue in this years election kicked off nationwide today. Several unions and groups are joining forces in the 40 million dollar effort. Health Care for America Now wants health care costs lowered. Television spots began running in some media markets today. Rich Templin is a spokesman for the group. Templin hopes every candidate will start talking about lowering health care cost.

The purpose of HCAN is to make this the dominate issue. Its not to make it the third the fourth, the fifth question to presidential candidate in the debate, but to make it the first second and third question in the debate and all the other races being held around the country for congress, said Templin.

The group says its nonpartisan and doesnt support either presidential candidate.
