Health Care In Campaign 2008

Ladies and Gentlemen, fasten your seat belts! The next 60 days or so will be abuzz as our esteemed candidates make their final lap in the race for the Oval Office. It's the final stretch and the point where the voting public really crystallizes their decision on whom to vote for.

Making an informed decision requires sound information. I hope the following is helpful in that regard.

  • Research!America's President, Mary Woolley, talks with NPR about the findings of a questionnaire sent to both campaigns. A questionnaire requesting "policy details on issues such as health care coverage, stem cell research, the Medicare prescription drug benefit, and funding for NIH, FDA and CDC." [Listen Here]

  • The Kaiser Network presents a new regular feature, Blog Watch. "Blog Watch, published on Tuesdays and Fridays, tracks a wide range of blogs, providing a brief description and relevant links for highlighted posts." [Blogwatch]
I will try to share as many resources as I can over the next two months. These are important decisions for our nation and the health of its citizens. It is our responsibility as citizens to become engaged for the benefit of both ourselves and our children. It is up to us to do our part. Our country needs health care reform now!
