MANASQUAN, N.J. —  The national healthcare crisis is growing in severity. Costs are spiraling out of control. Forty-seven million Americans are without health insurance and there is a general lack of access to quality care. Americans are concerned.

“Although America leads the world in spending on health care, it is the only wealthy, industrialized nation that does not ensure that all citizens have coverage," according to the Institute of Medicine.   

Heading into the 2008 election campaign, healthcare reform has become a major issue.
