Health care not on 'values voters' agenda

 |  NCR Today

This is the teaser Religion News Service sent out today on a story it will publish later today. The quote caught my eye:

For 'values voters,' health care barely
WASHINGTON -- Health care reform may be the No. 1 topic in Congress and the White House, but for conservative religious activists gathered at the Values Voter Summit this weekend, the topic barely registered. "To me, there are so many more important issues than health care right now," said Linda Leaman of Lancaster, Pa.

I can't wait to see what some of those "more important issues" are. The full story will be posted to the NCR web site as soon as it becomes available.
