I was on Minnesota Public Radio's "The Daily Circuit" yesterday, to talk about the Obama campaign's tailored health care reform pitch to African Americans and Latinos. It's one of the few times I can recall the White House being as specific about the benefits of health care reform as it should have been all along. The basic message is that African Americans and Latinos, who are uninsured at rates much higher than whites, stand to gain a lot from access to preventative care, and other measures to reduce health disparities in both communities.
But while the White House is working to make African Americans and Latino voters aware of those benefits and how to access them, the president might ad that those very benefits are now threatened by the newest "Death Panel" to enter the seemingly interminable health care reform debate.
Help us spread the word about these important stories...
