Senate candidates disagree on health care overhaul

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Discontent with the health care overhaul
passed earlier this year has filtered into the U.S. Senate race in
Kentucky.
Only one of the four major candidates, Democrat Jack Conway,
gives unconditional support for the landmark law, though he says
it's "far from perfect."
Republican candidate Rand Paul, a Bowling Green eye surgeon,
sees lots of imperfections with the overhaul. He said congressional
Democrats "took a problem and made it worse" by passing the
measure.
Democratic candidate Daniel Mongiardo, a Hazard doctor, said he
would have voted for the overhaul only if the White House promised
follow-up efforts to make health care less expensive and more
efficient.
Secretary of State Trey Grayson, the other leading GOP
candidate, said his own prescription to lower health care costs for
consumers would do so without adding to the budget deficit or
raising taxes.
