Paul Bass of the New Haven Independent interviewed both candidates for Governor about their plans and a lot of the questions related to health care. Foley wants to emphasize community-based alternatives over increasing reimbursements to nursing homes; Malloy believes that both are needed as CT’s population gets older and health care needs increase. Malloy supports SustiNet as a means for CT to implement health reform; Foley believes SustiNet is too expensive and the uninsured is not a big problem in CT. In HUSKY, Malloy wants to enroll every eligible child; Foley emphasized rooting out fraud by individuals. Foley wants to privatize Riverview Hospital and Southbury Training School; Malloy does not and wants to address unmet needs for mental health care.
