Kennedy focuses from home on healthcare overhaul

AP/Yahoo News, October 27, 2008

Edward Kennedy is trying to lay the groundwork for a breakthrough on healthcare reform next year, though many believe the enormous undertaking has been made even more difficult by the troubled economy. Kennedy, aides say, has held several video conferences with lawmakers and staff in recent months as he fights from home to overcome brain cancer. His staff has held more than a dozen meetings in recent weeks with various advocacy and interest groups that will help influence the debate.
