Former President Bill Clinton Says on Meet the Press … “… what’s the best way to get to universal coverage”
Once again with Bill Clinton and now Barack Obama, it all depends on what the definition of is, is.
Did every one catch what former President Bill Clinton said this morning on “Meet the Press”? Check out the video below (1:00 mark) where Clinton brings up that a debate needed to get the discussion to what their ultimate goal is, universal health care. This is a nuanced code for single payer healthcare.
“We need a credible debate about what’s the best way to get to universal coverage.”
Barack Obama is a proponent of a single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. But as Obama has stated in the past, that may not happen immediately. First we have to take back the White House, the Senate and the House. Obama’s plan was to take control of both the Senate and the House, pass through a public health care option that will eventually undermine private insurance in the United States and thus get his single payer health care plan by default. How obvious could this possibly be?
I mean, they may be hurting President Obama. They can take his numbers down, they can run his opposition up. But fundamentally, he and his team have a positive agenda for America. Their agenda seems to be wanting him to fail, and that’s not a prescription for a good America. We actually need a credible debate about what’s the right balance between continuing to expand the economy through stimulus and beginning to move back to fiscal balance. We need a credible debate about what’s the best way to get to universal coverage.
