The AFL-CIO is launching a new campaign reaching out to over a million union swing voters on the health care issue. The effort is targeted in battleground states including Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan. It centers on John McCain’s proposal to tax employer-based health care benefits and privatize Medicare.The AFL-CIO calls it a risky health care scheme that just further burdens already economically struggling workers and middle class families. A mass mailing, a million leaflets, more than 150,000 phone calls and home visits in Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio are all part of this campaign. The AFL-CIO is in the midst of its largest campaign mobilization in history, contacting over 13 million voters in 24 priority states.
