Health care is one of the key domestic policy issues for the 2008 presidential campaign, and both Democratic and Republican candidates are jockeying for position. Here’s a look at some of the major health care issues that are likely to have an impact on cancer patients and their care, and what stances the leading candidates have taken so far.
The candidates have issued health care proposals that vary widely in terms of the degree of detail about proposed initiatives and funding. So far, the Democratic candidates have addressed these issues in greater detail than the Republicans. Here we outline how the leading contenders from each party stand on the health care policy issues mentioned above.
Hillary Clinton has put forward her “Health Choices Plan,” which details her proposal to expand health insurance coverage and make it more affordable. She also outlined her Plan to Fight Cancer at the LIVESTRONG Presidential Cancer Forum in Cedar Rapids, IA.
John Edwards has put forward a detailed proposal for revamping health care, including its cost ($90-120 billion a year) and ways to fund his proposals. He has also proposed a National Strategy on Cancer Survivorship.
Dennis Kucinich warrants mention because he is the only candidate to endorse a universal, single-payer, not-for-profit health care system based on Medicare.
Barack Obama has a plan to provide universal health coverage that echoes elements of Edwards’ and Clinton’s plans.
As a whole, the Republican Candidates do not address insurance discrimination, catastrophic coverage, NIH funding, or stem cell research. They generally propose to increase the number of insured individuals by increasing competition among insurers, providing tax incentives to individuals to obtain insurance, and lowering the cost of health care.
John McCain proposes to broaden the number of insured in the following way:
Mitt Romney, who as Governor of Massachusetts pioneered that state’s health care plan requiring individuals to purchase insurance, is opposed to a national version of his plan for Massachusetts.
