    Health continues to be an important issue in politics today and will only grow more important as our population continues to age (well people always age, but you know what I mean! :))

    The following are 3 short excerpts from Kerry, Badnarik & Bush official websites. I slightly modified them to somewhat mask the identies. The message was not changed in any way however.

    http://www.badnarik.org/
    http://www.georgewbush.com/

    Chose which one you like best in the poll.


    [Candidate A] believes that your family’s health is just as important as any politician’s in Washington. That’s why he will give every American access to the health care plan that the President and Members of Congress already have. [Candidate A] has the courage to take on special interests to get health care costs under control. He will stand up to big insurance and drug companies that impede progress.[Candidate A]'s health care plan takes care of our most vulnerable citizens by covering every child and preserving and strengthening Medicare.
    *****
    [Candidate B]If you elect me as your president, I will end excess regulation of pharmaceuticals, health care providers, and insurance companies. Physicians will be held liable for malpractice, but not for problems beyond their control. Health care costs will plummet.
    Taxpayers will save as much as they are now spending on Medicare/Medicaid when they no longer have to fund this destructive bureaucracy. Tax credits can then be extended to any person or organization funding Health Savings Accounts for themselves or others. With such tax incentives to aid in charitable gifting, Medicare or Medicaid recipients can transition into their choice of private health insurance, allowing rapid privatization of these programs.
    *****
    [Candidate C] has proposed a framework to modernize and improve Medicare that builds on principles he outlined in July 2001. He looks forward to working with Congress on legislation to bring more choices and better benefits to Medicare this year. [Candidate C] has committed up to $400 billion over the next ten years in his FY 2004 budget to pay for modernizing and improving Medicare
