Draft Democratic party platform commits to ‘affordable, comprehensive health care’ for all.

Today, the 186-member Democratic platform committee put together a draft document “united behind a commitment that every American man, woman and child be guaranteed to have affordable, comprehensive health care.” Other highlights of the platform — which will be adopted at the Democratic convention later this month — are “complete redeployment within 16 months” from Iraq, closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, and “tough, practical, and humane immigration reform in the first year of the next administration.”
