President Bush touts health savings accounts in Bridgeport
President Bush visited southwestern Connecticut Wednesday to talk about health care and savings accounts. More than 130 business and political leaders gathered at the Green on State Street in Bridgeport to hear the president?s plan on health savings accounts. Bush told community leaders he wants small businesses to be able to afford health care for its employees. He said a health care savings plan is a viable alternative to traditional insurance. The plans allow people to pay for health care by setting up a tax-free savings account. They also must buy a high-deductible insurance policy for catastrophic expenses. Any money left in the account at the end of the year would roll over. Related Story
