Group seeks end to gridlock on health reform
Reuters/Yahoo News, September 9, 2008
A coalition of business and labor groups has joined with an advocacy group for the elderly to try to break the gridlock and achieve successful healthcare reform under the next president. The nearly 40 million-member senior citizens group AARP, the Business Roundtable, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, and the Service Employees International Union have been dogging candidates on healthcare for more than a year. Their "Divided We Fail" campaign includes television advertisements and dozens of community forums to ensure healthcare takes center stage in this year's congressional and presidential elections.
