Dodd: “Everyone Participates, Everyone Benefits”

Isaiah J. Poole

Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd said his plan was based on four principles: universality (“everyone participates, everyone benefits,” prevention, extend Medicaid to more families, and improving the use of technology. He referenced his leadership in getting the Family Medical Leave Act written into the law as proof of his commitment to working families and to the health care issue. (He also mentioned his two young children and his status as perhaps the only lawmaker in Congress who “gets mail from the AARP and from diaper services.”)

As did some of the other candidates, Dodd said that all Americans should be able to get the same type of health care plan as members of Congress.
