Thursday Morning Round-Up
- The Norwich Bulletin reports on Ned's visit to a health care center in Willimantic yesterday:
"We should be proud of facilities like this, and the long-term relationship it has with patients," Lamont said, praising the emphasis on preventive measures. [Executive Director of Thompson Ecumenical Empowerment Group Donna] Grant called that welcome news.
"I would like to have someone new in the system who is open to the values that preventive measures and wellness programs can make," she said.
- Sen. Lieberman held a press conference call yesterday to run away from his bought-and-paid-for record on health care. More at today's Cup of Joe:
NED LAMONT HAS ACTUALLY RUN A BUSINESS & MET PAYROLL; HE UNDERSTANDS SMALL BUSINESS HEALTH POLICY: "I'm challenging a guy that really never spent an hour in the private sector, spent his whole life on the public payroll," Ned Lamont has said. "I'm a guy that started up a business from scratch, met a payroll and I think it's a good point of view to have down in Washington, especially when it comes to health care."
- David Broder thinks entrenched incumbents like Mike DeWine and Joe Lieberman are the answer to all of D.C.'s problems. Josh Marshall has the best summary:
Shorter David Broder: Bush is a lawless president at war with the constitution. Also, Gore and Kerry, who opposed him, are know-it-alls I don't like. Hopefully Republican moderates and Lieberman can all get reelected so the country can be saved.
- The Day reports a three-way debate is scheduled for Oct. 23rd in New London, moderated by George Stephanopoulos.
