Have you seen those cable ads from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce commending Mark Kirk for his work to expand access to health care in America? And have you also seen those crazy national Democratic Party cable ads claiming Mark Kirk hates seniors? Certainly a contradiction on the airwaves. The ads inspired me to do a little more research into the contrast between Dan Seals and Mark Kirk on the issue.
Here's a brief summary of Kirk's record from his Web site. And here's the Fact Check on the Democratic claims. 100% ratings from the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Children's Health Fund -- not bad, Congressman!
But what about the pup? What's his record (I use that term very loosely) on health care? To answer that burning question, I am pleased to unveil the a Real Deal Seals page: Dan Seals on Health Care.
From taking away critical services for 90,000 10th District seniors, to taking away all prescription drug coverage for seniors, to providing taxpayer-funded health care for illegal immigrants to putting the people who run the post office between you and your doctor, Dan Seals is quite extreme when it comes to health care.
