Former Vermont Governor to sign new book on healthcare reform
BURLINGTON, Vt., July 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Howard Dean will appear Barnes and Noble's Union Square location in New York City to sign his new book, Howard Dean's Prescription for Real Healthcare Reform (www.deanshealthcare.com). During his appearance Dean will make brief remarks regarding the latest in the healthcare reform debate and sign copies of his book.
Dean has been traveling across the country helping to mobilize critical grassroots support for healthcare reform that includes a public health insurance option for every American. In his book, Dean takes on those who are once again mobilizing against real reform with many of the same hollow arguments and rhetorical charges about a socialist agenda. As Dean points out, they should check the facts. "America has had 'socialized' medicine since 1964. It's called Medicare; it covers every American over 65, and they are very happy with the program. The rest of America deserves a similar option."
In the book Dean also looks at the devastating impact has had on the American economy adding to job losses as rising health care costs cause a bankruptcy in America every 30 seconds, 14,000 people lose their health insurance every day. Rising health care costs are also one of the major reasons why small businesses close down and corporations ship jobs overseas.
The book is published by Chelsea Green Publishing Company, based in Vermont.
