News

Cincinnati.com – …The grant will pay for a 12,000-square-foot building for New Richmond Family Practice, which will replace one on Old U.S. 52 that's in the Ohio River flood plain, Jackson said. "It's going to be higher on the hill. We've already purchased land. It's going to allow us to see about 4,500 new patients" there.

A 15,000-square-foot building to be constructed on Mount Carmel-Tobasco Road in Union Township will be the new home of Eastgate Pediatrics, which is now on Ferguson Drive, Jackson said.

Receiving similar grants through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act were health centers in Franklin and Morgan counties.

"These funds will help expand Ohioans' access to medical care while creating jobs," said U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, the Ohio Democrat.

Sandusky Register – With the eyes of the world on the big climate change summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, a group of nine senators led by U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, have staked out the principles that would allow them to vote in favor of an international treaty and the carbon cap and trade bill.

The group sent a letter to President Barack Obama late last week, saying they support the effort against global warming but that any global agreement to control greenhouse gases must include curbs on all major economies.

Huffington Post – …Support for lowering the age for Medicare access has been around for roughly a decade. Back when Al Gore suggested the buy-in proposal during the 2000 presidential election, Democrats largely hailed it as a smart approach to expanding coverage. The list included Gore's vice presidential nominee, Lieberman, now one of the most conservative member of the Democratic caucus, as well as then-Ohio congressman Sherrod Brown, now one of the caucus's firmest progressives.

On August 11, 2000, the Ohio State News Service profiled Brown as he was set to head to the Democratic Convention in Los Angeles. Then the ranking member on the U.S. House Commerce Subcommittee on Health and the Environment, he listed as his top priorities the expansion "of health care to uninsured children and providing Medicare to people ages 55 to 64."

"I hope that what comes out of the convention is that the voters pay attention to the issues that are important—school construction, minimum wage, prescription drugs and the expansion of Medicare," Brown said at the time.

The Columbus Dispatch – …And the amendment at stake? Coburn, who opposes the creation of a federal health-insurance option as part of any overhaul of the health-care system, proposed that all members of Congress be required to enroll in any new government plan.

That's fine with Brown. Nobody in the Senate has pushed a federal plan harder than he has.
