New Report Analyzes How Children Fare in Candidates' Health Care Plans
Date:10/21/2008

lth coverage for our nation's children. As the economy remains damaged and unemployment rates increase, health care for children must be a top priority to ensure that the next generation has the care they need to grow up to be healthy and productive citizens."

In recent weeks, there have been a number of analyses of the presidential candidates' health plans, but none of those analyses specifically noted how children would fare under those proposals. To address this need, First Focus commissioned this report, which was authored by Peter Harbage, Hilary Haycock, and Michael Odeh of Harbage Consulting, LLC.

Harbage has advised both Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA) and former presidential candidate John Edwards (D-NC) on their state and national health care reform proposals. Both Haycock and Odeh have specific knowledge and understanding of pediatric issues addressed by the project.

First Focus is a bipartisan organization that is committed to making children and their families a priority in federal policy and budget decisions. To learn more visit http://www.firstfocus.net
