Presidential Candidates’ Stance on Healthcare will be Examined

On Friday, August 8th, the League of Women Voters will host their monthly “Lunch with the League” at the South Bend Chocolate Café (Rockne Room). This month’s discussion will be on the Presidential Candidates’ healthcare plans, led by fellow LWV member, AARP (Divided We Fail) member, and longtime nursing activist, Pat McQuade. Program begins at 12:00 noon, but attendees are encouraged to come as early as 11:30 to order lunch.

This will be a good opportunity to share the Green Party’s platform on universal health care, which none of the other presidential candidates are including in their rhetoric. I will also have available copies of a July 15th 2008 Newsweek interview with Cynthia McKinney, the Green Party’s Presidential candidate. In the article, McKinney speaks to many critical issues, including the ongoing war in Iraq and universal health care.

Pass this information along to anyone who may be interested in this important issue. This meeting is open to the public.
