Goodman declares for Congressional seat

Sen. Jack Goodman, R-Mount Vernon, officially announced his candidacy for the Seventh District Congreasional seat Friday in Joplin, smack in the middle of possible rival Gary Nodler's senatorial district:

If elected, Goodman said he would fight against a move toward socialized medicine.

"I don't want the government deciding whose health care is a good investment and whose is not," Goodman told reporters.

Goodman said he supports legislation that opens up the health care market so consumers can shop around for the best deal and doctor. He also favors legislation that makes it easier for small businesses to pool health insurance coverage.
