Target Weighing Health Care Endorsement
After Walmart surprised the business world earlier this month in endorsing employer-mandated health care, one of the company's biggest competitors is reportedly giving thought to doing the same.
According to published reports by Bloomberg News and Dow Jones, Target may join Walmart in taking that stand in the heath care policy debate. A Target spokeswoman told Dow Jones that the chain supports the idea "in concept," but was holding off on an official endorsement in the absence of a final bill.
Congress is currently debating changes to the nation's health care system. Walmart recently came out in favor of mandated coverage, signing a letter along with labor giant SEIU and the liberal think tank Center for American Progress.
