LANSING, Mich., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was issued today by the Michigan Democratic Party:



Today at 1:30 p.m. State Representative Robert Jones, Dr. Michael Liepman, and local supporters will sound the alarm on John McCain's radical health care plan. According to the nonpartisan organization Factcheck.org, "McCain's plan to tax workers on the value of their employer-provided health care plans and provide tax credits would encourage some employers, mainly small businesses, to drop health benefits, say experts, and the proposal could eventually eliminate job-based insurance altogether."
