Health Care for All Americans by 2008

Today I am joined by 50 members of the House in introducing a resolution that urges Congress to provide universal healthcare by 2008. The U.S. spends more on health care and provides less coverage than other developed nations around the world. Reforming our health care system is a moral imperative- we do not even guarantee preventive coverage for our children. Skyrocketing health care costs are stretching the wallets of most families and hindering the competitiveness of American businesses. We can and we must reduce costs, guarantee coverage, and provide quality care.
