1. AFL-CIO Labor Rights Scorecard Ratings (0-100%) for each of the possible or declared current Congressional candidates based on how they voted on labor-related bills.

2. League of Conservation Voters Environment Scorecard Ratings based on voting record in 107th Congress (except for Mosley Braun, whose lifetime record is shown).

3. Dean has a complex 4-prong plan, extending multiple state and federal programs piecemeal, combined with tax credits and incentives, all of which Dean claims is more likely to become law, but still won't cover everyone (source: www.BobHarris.com). Gephardt's plan is not single payer.

4. Single payer Universal Health Care has been endorsed by the Journal of the American Medical Association and over 8,000 U.S. physicians, August, 2003.

5. Dean has not taken a clear stand on this issue. Please see http://www.boston.com/dailyglobe2/222/oped/Dean_s_unseemly_stumble+.shtml for more information.

6. Reason for voting no: said the resolution should have authorized force against terrorist groups as well: "This resolution is too timid. … War abroad will, without assertive security action, increase the prospects of terrorist attacks here at home."
