SEIU pushes for healthcare
The Service Employees International Union has launched America for Health Care, an advocacy group designed to make healthcare the No. 1 issue in the 2008 presidential campaign. The group wants all candidates for the nation's highest office to offer reform plans that would address holes in insurance coverage and benefits. The 500,000-member America for Health Care is asking politicians to draw up plans accomplishing four elements: offering affordable, quality health insurance for all Americans, eliminating benefit gaps, finding and implementing cost efficiencies, and providing health plans similar to what federal employees receive in terms of plan and care choices.
