In a four-page, single-spaced release addressed to Democratic Party delegates, William Robbins, who's vying for a seat in Congress, calls health care "a complex subject" and also refers to it as "the issue from hell."

The statement points to a number of causes that contribute to high health-care costs and explains his stand on reforms and solutions.Robbins proposes such measures as replacing both Medicaid and Medicare with "a single, limited, prevention-oriented, single-payer program open to all cit-i-zens unable to afford medical coverage, with fees scaled according to ability to pay."
