A tool to be used during election campaigns asking candidates for public office to pledge to make health care a priority issue.  Candidates declare their support and, if elected, commitment to work for the implementation of three items of a health care agenda:  1) an end to the expansion of private, for profit, health care; 2) improving and expanding Senior Care services; and 3) the establishment of a national PharmaCare program to cover not just catastrophic medications but all medically necessary drugs.
