Another health plan
Republican congressional candidate Grant Bosse of Hillsboro continues to serve as the policy wonk among the five competing for the 2nd District nomination.
Bosse unveiled his health-care plan in David's House at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
The plan encompasses much of the McCain/Republican National Committee agenda on the subject: full deductibility of health-care freedom, letting seniors choose a private plan option to Medicare, expanding use of a health-care savings account and allowing all consumers to choose plans across state lines.
"America has the best health care in the world, but we've designed a health-insurance system that makes it too difficult and too expensive for everyone to use," Bosse said.
Also in the Telegraph, Kyle Stucker writes about a candidates' coffee held yesterday in Hollis. Stucker details Grant's support of last week's Supreme Court decision defending the Second Amendment.

In addition to oil-drilling restrictions, Bosse said there is another piece of legislation interfering with the American way of life. Bosse wants to fully restore the Second Amendment and pass legislation that would allow gun owners to carry weapons on federal land, as well as over state lines, without prosecution.
"We're essentially telling people they don't have a right to defend themselves," said Bosse, referring to current restrictions on certain weapons.
