In his State of the Union address on February 2, President Bush outlined
his positions on health care and medical research.
The president called for giving families “greater access to good
coverage and more control over their health decisions.” To do so, Bush
wants Congress to pass legislation offering “tax credits to help low-income
workers buy insurance, a community health center in every poor county, improved
information technology to prevent medical error and needless costs, association
health plans for small businesses and their employees, expanded health savings
accounts, and medical liability reform that will reduce health care costs
and make sure patients have the doctors and care they need.”
