Earlier this week, I posted Tom Reilly’s environmental plan, in part, because the mainstream media doesn’t seem to be paying much attention to any of the candidates’ policy initiatives.
According to his website, Tom Reilly announced his “Prescription for a Healthy Massachusetts” this morning at the Whittier Street Health Center in Roxbury. His website also includes a brief overview for those looking for a faster read. It also comes along with some endorsement statements. From the Reilly website:
Declaring that âthe most important work in health care lies ahead,â Attorney General and Gubernatorial candidate Tom Reilly today announced his comprehensive plan to implement the next phase of health care reform by reining in costs for families and businesses and making the quality of care a national model.
Speaking with staff at the Whittier Street Health Center in Roxbury, Reilly outlined his proposal to build a model 21st century health care system in Massachusetts. The plan will provide more effective, efficient care through better use of information technology, help patients stay out of costly emergency rooms by better managing chronic diseases, make prescription drugs more affordable through bulk purchasing and establishing a statewide system for the safe re-importation of drugs from Canada, and place an unprecedented focus on childrenâs health.
I am sure that BMG will provide some helpful responses, but for those wishing to send it directly to the Reilly campaign, they are soliciting feedback here.
