Health Care Coverage and Drug Costs - The Candidates Speak Out
George W. Bush, John F. Kerry, New England Journal of Medicine, 10-28-01

The New England Journal of Medicine submitted two questions to the presidential candidates, one on health insurance and the other on prescription drug costs. The ensuing replies indicate their governing philosophies: Senator Kerry, who wants widespread government intervention in health care markets to control costs and subsidize care, and President Bush, who favors a market response with relatively narrow, targeted government interventions. Must reading for any voters who may still be undecided at this late date.
