The candidates for US senate met Monday night in Vincennes for their final debate. Dan Coats, Brad Ellsworth, and Rebecca Sink-Burris participated in a total of three debates this election season. Healthcare was a major topic in each of the debates. Democrat Ellsworth says the President’s health care reform plan will save money in the long run.
The Congressional budget office estimates that over the lifetime of 20 years it will actually reduce the cost of health care by a trillion dollars – that is good fiscal management,” Ellsworth said.
Meanwhile Republican Coats says Hoosiers do not support the kind of health care reform recently passed.
“They would like to see some of the innovations that have been started in this state and in other places to continue…health savings accounts, the Healthy Hoosiers plan that the governor put in place,” Coats said.
…and Libertarian candidate Sink-Burris argues the free market should be allowed to operate and help control costs.
