An editorial appeared today in the Concord Monitor (link:http://www.concordmonitor.com/apps/pbcs. dll/article?AID=/20071209/OPINION/712090 405/1028/OPINION02) in New Hampshire lauding Senator Clinton's health care plan. Mandating health care is the only way in the present environment to provide universal coverage. Sen. Obama's attacking Sen. Clinton from the right on this is unbelieveable, and demonstrates a lot of audacity considering that his plan leaves 15 million Americans uncovered.
More from the editorial:
Hillary's American Health Choices Plan will secure, simplify and ensure choice in health coverage for all Americans. The plan covers every American - finally addressing the needs of the 47 million uninsured and the tens of millions of hard-working Americans who live in fear of losing their health coverage - with no overall increase in health spending or taxes. For people who have health insurance, the plan builds on the current system to give businesses and their employees a greater choice of health plans, including keeping the one they have, while lowering cost and improving quality. Sen. Clinton's plan includes refundable, income-related tax credits for working families. It also creates a small-business tax credit to make it easier for small businesses to create new jobs with health care for workers here in the United States.
Oh, yeah: I forgot to mention. The editorial was written by Dr. Susan Lynch, the first lady of New Hampshire.
