How do the U.S. Senate candidates in Georgia differ on covering the uninsured?

Seven candidates for the Senate seat in 2014 answer these and other health care questions in a newly released election guide from Healthcare Georgia Foundation.

The seven are Republicans Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey, Karen Handel, Jack Kingston and David Perdue, and Democrats Michelle Nunn and Branko Radulovacki.
