Minority groups raise voices on reform

Washington Post, October 8, 2009

Minority groups are seeking to become a larger part of the healthcare overhaul debate with a new campaign and new ads. Leaders of black and Latino advocacy groups say that because so many of their members favor healthcare reform, they are becoming more forceful as the final drafts near. According to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, there is a wide racial gap in Americans' views on healthcare reform, with minorities largely in favor of changing the system and supportive of President Obama's handling of it.
