Sen. Kennedy seeks universal health care plan

| 1/12/2007

Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-MA, is seeking a Medicare-style universal health care plan for all Americans, according to The Associated Press.

Kennedy serves as chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, which deals with health issues, is having hearings on the issue.

A 2006 survey by the OOIDA Foundation found that one-third of the respondents have no health care coverage. Another 22 percent said they were covered by their spouse's policy.
