Edwards on Health Care

Washington Post - Edwards Introduces Plan For Health-Care Coverage
The plan would require employers to provide health insurance for employees or pay a portion of their payroll into a fund that would help individuals buy their own insurance. Edwards said the plan would demand that people take responsibility for obtaining insurance, either from employers or on their own.

The federal government would provide tax credits to help underwrite the cost of insurance and, through the states, would establish state or regional health-care markets, or purchasing pools, that would offer competing health plans to individuals.
I don't know if that is specific enough and different enough to get anyone's attention or not. But at least he's trying.
