Kerry Touches On Economy, Healthcare In Michigan Visit
The Detroit Free Press reports today that Senator Kerry, during a campaign stop yesterday, addressed "the loss of manufacturing jobs and what he called an unjust and misguided prohibition on the purchase of low-cost Canadian prescriptions by U.S. residents." Kerry also "touched on health care, which he said would be available to every child in America 'immediately, Day 1' if he is elected." The Detroit News reports that Kerry "drew a surprisingly large crowd of more than 15,000 energized, poster-waving backers to a sun-drenched downtown rally" in Grand Rapids "that impressed even the natives of this longtime capital of west Michigan conservatism."
