Obama urged to overhaul healthcare, stat

Los Angeles Times, November 11, 2008

Four leading advocacy groups representing business, labor, and retirees are starting a campaign to press Barack Obama to enact comprehensive healthcare reform. In a letter to Obama, the Business Roundtable, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, AARP, and the Service Employees International Union urge that a healthcare overhaul be a priority in the administration's first 100 days. The groups plan to spend nearly $1 million to publicize their cause in newspaper and television advertising in coming weeks.
