Washington Post: Clinton, Obama Debate Healthcare In Cleveland
“Clinton and Obama “traded accusations over campaign tactics and engaged in a detailed dissection of their rival health-care plans in the opening moments of a critical debate.” Clinton used “the opening moments of the debate” to “delve into health care, repeating her assertion that Obama’s plan would leave 15 million people uncovered. She interrupted Obama and the debate moderators repeatedly to press her points and complained briefly that she had been repeatedly subjected to the toughest questioning in this and previous debates.”
USA Today: Even As Consumers Lose Heart, Prices Rise

The Hill: Commerce Secretary Touts Digital Transition Efforts
“Carlos Gutierrez, U.S. secretary of commerce, writes, “The good news is that the public education campaign to alert consumers about this dramatic change is well underway and the word is getting out.” In addition, “we are proactively working to reach and address specific concerns of consumers most likely to be impacted by the transition, such as seniors, minority communities, people with disabilities, the economically disadvantaged and those in rural areas.”
