(MANCHESTER) State Rep. Peter Sullivan today challenged Jim Craig and Jeb Bradley to explain their proposals for providing affordable health care for every American family.

"Sixty years ago, Harry Truman pledged that no American would be denied the health care that he or she needs. It's time to deliver on Truman's promise", said Sullivan.

"I have outlined a sensible, pragmatic plan for achieving health care coverage. My proposal builds on existinginitiatives, and moves us to universal coverage without a cumbersome and expensive new bureaucracy. By tapping the best aspects of both the private and public sectors, we can ensure that no family goes without the care they need".

"Jeb and Jim have offered only generalities and vague assurances. 'When in doubt, mumble' is not a sound health care policy. The people of New Hampshire deserve to know what the candidates will do to meet this challenge. I have presented my plan, and I hope that Jim and Jeb will finally offer some straight answers".

Sullivan toured the Strafford County Riverside Nursiong Home and participated in a forum on health care policy in Dover on Wednesday evening.

Peter Sullivan's plan is available on his campaign web site at http://www.sullivanforcongress.org/HealthCare.html
