Health Plan :: Edwards Discusses Universal Health Coverage Proposal at Las Vegas Forum

Presidential candidate and former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) on Wednesday at a town hall meeting in Las Vegas said that he would use the “bully pulpit” of the presidency to prompt reforms in the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries and address problems with the “dysfunctional health care system,” the Las Vegas Sun reports.

During the meeting, held at Sheet Metal Workers U nion Local 88, members of an audience of about 300 u nion members told Edwards about their problems with access to health care.

Edwards said, “My universal health care plan covers all the things you’re talking about,” adding, “No one would ever have to worry about preventive care”.
