Why Health Care Advocates Don't Vote Republican

The Republicans have repeatedly shown that they have no interest in extending health care to those who currently have no coverage. President Bush's Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) have done nothing to solve the rising costs of health care, and close to nothing for those in the lowest income brackets.

The GOP's level of interest in the health care issue is best exhibited on Tom Kean Jr.'s website. There he provides the easy solutions that require little to no work by the government or the citizenry.

Note: Although the Medical Malpractice Litigation is often blamed for high health care costs, malpractice lawsuits account for 0.7% of the total U.S. health care costs annually.
