21st Congressional candidate Democrat Tracey Brooks says she’s releasing her second television commercial, which is now posted on You Tube. It includes the same talking points as her mailers and radio spots - access to health care, a woman’s right to choose, equal pay and ending the Iraq war. Mentioning “standing up to George Bush” is also featured.

21st CD: Health care policies
Some time ago, I did a post about the health care policies of the Dem candidates for Congress in NY's 21st district. The slate of candidates has changed since that previous post. Now that the candidates are presumably set for the primary on September 9, it might be useful to revisit the candidates' policies, according to each one's web site.
As you'll see, the content varies from web site to web site. Some are very specific, some less so. Take a look:
I will go to Washington to fight for guaranteed health care coverage for all and support bills like H.R. 676 [link for H.R. 676 - A.L.] that accomplish that goal.
[...] It's also time for America's taxpayers to get something for our money other than paying interest to foreign nations. Instead of paying that interest, Darius believes we can find new ways to fund health care, invest in our schools and cut our property taxes to the bone.
