Neither candidate has answer on healthcare, panel says

The Tennessean, October 8, 2008

Neither presidential candidate was viewed as having a complete plan to deal with problems in the nation's healthcare system, during a panel discussion moderated by Tennessee Sen. Bill Frist prior to the presidential debate. Charles "Chip" Kahn III, president of the Federation of American Hospitals and one of the panelists in the discussion, said Democratic candidate Sen. Barack Obama has presented "a bunch of ideas, but I'm not sure where he's going with it." Sen. John McCain, the Republican candidate, leaves uncertainities about coverage, Kahn added.
