Since this blog will address how the 2008 presidential candidates are handling the question of effective health care for Americans, these topics and more will be worth watching:
- Universal health insurance: Many candidates are calling for every citizen to be required to have health insurance – this does not mean the government would provide that coverage for everyone, just that everyone should have it. See what the experts are saying about Hillary Clinton’s plan here.
- Medicare: Senior citizens’ health care is another big issue. In this article, Gov. Bill Richardson anounced he has a new plan for senior citizens’ health care. In this one, Medicare announces it will recoup $4 billion from U.S. drug companies because spending was lower than expected.
- Kids’ health: Barack Obama’s plan requires that only children participate in required health care. Here’s a “Huffington Post” blogger’s post on the fate of kids’ health care.
