New Jersey races focus on healthcare costs
Philadelphia Inquirer, October 9, 2008
Candidates in the most significant federal races in South Jersey say they have plans to help voters by cutting health costs. The staff for U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, for example, has been working to reduce healthcare costs by focusing on disease prevention and early treatment. He also has worked to stop insurers from denying coverage because of preexisting medical conditions. To cut provider costs, he has supported electronic medical records.
