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.
