Edwards Visits Salem

The Union Leader today had an article focused John Edwards trip. At a house party in Salem, Edwards discussed his universal health care proposal and his definite policy stances. The former North Carolina senator said "There will not be a voter in America that doesn't know where I stand on anything." Here is an excerpt of the article:

"More than a hundred supporters packed the home and living room of a Corinthian Drive home yesterday to pose questions and hear more about John Edwards' Presidential primary run.

Edwards described his plan for universal health care as a solution to make health care spending more effective in the country while making it available for all Americans by repealing Bush tax cuts made for Americans earning more than $200,000 a year.

"Universal health care is not cheap," Edwards said. "I'm not saying it isn't. But I think it's critical for America to remain strong in the long run."

Edwards said his plan would cover preventative care, chronic care and long-term care while driving down administrative costs that account for 40 cents on every dollar spent on health care in America."
