DNC: Rudy Shows Again He's Out-of-Touch With America's Priorities
Date:12/28/2007

Giuliani's Comments Come After Failed Mayoral Record and Drug Industry Ties

WASHINGTON, Dec. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After diverting his private plane to seek emergency medical care last week, Rudy Giuliani showed just how out of touch he is with the needs of average Americans when he told the Tampa Tribune editorial board that Republican voters are not concerned about health care "maybe because Republicans have health care." [Tampa Tribune, 12/27/07]

Rudy's comments come as a new Associated Press survey shows that most voters say health care is "extremely important to them personally." The poll indicates that 64 percent of men and women approaching retirement are "worried about a major unexpected medical expense" and most voters say they are far more likely to trust Democrats to handle health care. [Associated Press, 12/28/07]

On the campaign trail, Giuliani has had to defend his abysmal health care record as voters learn that he slashed New York City's health care services and profited by lobbying for the drug industry. During his tenure as mayor, he cut the number of city hospital beds by 28% and then, in the private sector, he personally lobbied Congress against lowering the cost of prescription drugs through safe re-importation.

"Rudy Giuliani's comments reveal just how out of touch he is with what's going on in America," said DNC Spokesman Dag Vega. "Rudy's perspective may be tainted given his lavish lifestyle but the fact remains that most Americans are worried about health care. It's no wonder that most Americans trust Democratic leaders to make health care coverage a priority."

A Record That Raises Concerns: Giuliani Slashed City Health Services
