An ally of home health care
An interesting excerpt from a Time article posted today:
In one unscheduled stop of the day, less than an hour after (the death of his grandmother Madelyn Dunham), Obama popped into his campaign office in Charlotte and made a few phone calls to uncommitted voters. He did not mention his grandmother to the campaign volunteers there, who were stunned and thrilled at his arrival. But his upbeat mood suddenly changed in the middle of one of the telephone calls, when the voter to whom he was talking brought up the subject of home heath care for the elderly.
"This is happening in my own family, and in addition to Social Security and Medicare, one of the things that I think is really important is (utilizing) home care a lot more," Obama said, suddenly looking sad and tired. "My grandmother was able to stay (at) home all the way until recently."
