Concord, NH - "Here's to your health!" It's more than just a saying in New Hampshire this week -- it's the start of a movement. That's the hope of thousands of New Hampshire voters demanding health care reform. They're part of the Health Care for America Now campaign that began with a kickoff at the State House on Tuesday.

The campaign is backed by a coalition of community, labor and faith-based groups. They say now is the time to address soaring health care costs and ensure access to care for all. Network coordinator John Thyng says this time the issue is personal for voters.

"What this really does is bring a lot of groups together under one umbrella. Basically we're going to be confronting the candidates and saying, 'Are you with us or are you against us?'"

The group isn't promoting a particular solution, Thyng explains, but they're calling on the candidates to bring forward their own health care policy.

"We're not pushing any specific health care plan. What we are saying is it needs to have choice; it needs to be a new American health care system that covers everyone."

The New Hampshire network is part of a nationwide campaign that kicked off simultaneously in 38 state capitals Tuesday. Local supporters include the State Employees Association, New Hampshire for Health Care and Granite State Progress.
