Campaign for America's Future Co-Director Roger Hickey Available to Discuss the Future of Health Care Under the Obama and McCain Administrations
Date:9/18/2008

WASHINGTON, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Roger Hickey, Co-Director of Campaign for America's Future will be available for interviews on issues dominating the political arena today, including the impact of the McCain health plan and findings from a report published in Health Affairs this week determining that nearly 20 million people will lose their health care coverage under the McCain plan. Mr. Hickey can also speak on "Health Care for America," the chapter he wrote in the Roosevelt Institution's newly released book, Progressive Voices.

Still more millions are seriously under-insured, though many don't realize it since insurance companies tend to be secretive about the conditions and procedures they refuse to cover -- until we actually need the care."

Mr. Hickey is also available to offer comment on a new seven-week ad campaign launched this week by the Campaign for America's Future's research arm, the Institute for America's Future calling for a "Debate Worthy of a Great Nation in Trouble."

The campaign began Tuesday, September 16, 2008, with the first of seven thought-provoking ads to run each week on the Op Ed page of the New York Times, with the intent to refocus the national discussion. The first issue ad outlined how the American dream is slipping out of reach for more and more families. The second ad will address the current financial crisis and effects of deregulation on Wall Stree
