Bush Record on Health Care

Kerry is campaigning against the miserable failure that is Bush's health care record:

[health care] premiums, which include the costs paid by both workers and their employees, jumped 41 percent, to $9,549 from $6,772, from 2000 to 2003; premiums increased 13.9 percent last year while earnings rose 3.1 percent; and spending on prescriptions has doubled since 1998 to $184 billion.
So that's almost $3000 per family that they could have had as income, dwarfing the pathetic little tax cuts most families received.

This has to be one of the major talking about about the Bush record. His inaction on health care has cost every American family $3000 per year.
