Two sides take healthcare debate outside Washington
President Obama, Congressional Democrats and leading advocacy groups are laying the groundwork for an August offensive against the insurance industry as part of a coordinated campaign to sell the public on the need for reform. The effort will feature town-hall-style meetings by lawmakers and the president, grass-roots lobbying efforts, and a blitz of expensive television advertising. It is intended to drive home the message that revamping the healthcare system will protect consumers by ending unpopular insurance industry practices.
