3. I take it this was a hand picked group
of doctors. The ones who have the most interest in keeping the health system as is. Along with the drug and insurance companies.

He would not like my input.

6. Did things in Youngstown improve that much?
They were pretty bad when I lived in Pgh., Pa. and had quite a few of unemployed friends from Youngstown because of the steel industry, it was a solid Dem area. What happened?

9. More faith based charity care

Making the 17th trip of his presidency to the state, Bush told a crowd of health care professionals that it is important to achieve his five-year goal of opening or expanding 1,200 health centers to serve more than 6 million people. The Youngstown Community Health Clinic treats mostly uninsured patients in this blue-collar city hit hard by job losses.


"This is part of the safety net, a wise expenditure of taxpayers' money," the president said. "We're trying to get up to serving 16 million people." The president said the health centers are cost-efficient alternatives to unnecessary visits to hospital emergency rooms.

Charity care meaning- We have the right to refuse service to anyone.

How about some Universal Health Care now.

Good quote here:
"George Bush's solution to the health care crisis in America is to close his eyes and pretend it's not there," said Kerry campaign spokesman Phil Singer.
