In Sickness and In Health


I’m officially sick. I thought I could outrun the cold, but last night it tackled me to the ground, and this morning I was in worse shape than expected.

However, though the magical power of the Interwebs, I am still online and engaged and working hard in prep for tonight’s debate and tomorrow’s big ad launch.

Oh, did I forget to mention? We’re starting a new ad campaign tomorrow questioning where some key Republicans (including McCain) stand on health care. I’ll give you a hint. Not on your side.

Meanwhile, take a look at where business comes down on the issue. According to the NYT:

American business, typically a reliable Republican cheerleader, is decidedly lukewarm about Senator John McCain’s proposal to overhaul the health care system by revamping the tax treatment of health benefits, officials with leading trade groups say.

The officials, with organizations like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable and the National Federation of Independent Business, predicted in recent interviews that the McCain plan, which eliminates the exclusion of health benefits from income taxes, would accelerate the erosion of employer-sponsored health insurance and do little to reduce the number of uninsured from 45 million.
