Gephardt for President, Inc.

30-second ad released Nov. 25, 2003

Morris & Carrick

Dick Gephardt: Thirty-one years ago, our two-year old son Matt was diagnosed with terminal cancer. 

Our health insurance paid for experimental treatments that saved Matt's life. 

But in the hospital we met a lot of parents who didn't have insurance.  I'll never forget the terror in their eyes. 

As president, I'll get rid of the Bush tax cuts to guarantee health insurance for every American. 

l'm Dick Gephardt and I approved this message because it's time we did what's right.
