Universal health care is a core Democratic value. 17 seconds of the debate well worth watching.

On a more comic note, I think I finally get all the rage by the mediocre guys - she is Hermoine to their Ron. She can take two classes at the same time and remember EVERYTHING from both. Must make them nuts...if if they have any taset...fall in love.
if in wrong please feel free to delete...
And I don't see how a mandate magically makes insurance more affordable. Auto insurance is mandated, and there were times in my life I couldn't afford it.
With mandated insurance, I still uninsured folks showing up in emergency rooms needing care. Under the mandated plans, will they be considered criminals?
also to address the other question, I think the health care will be introduced on a sliding scale with income....so if you cant afford it you wont have to pay as much etc etc....I dont know the particulars but I am totally uninsurable and need this help badly.....
When her policy advisors talk about that plan they refer to "Individual Mandates."
A Clinton adviser compares the plan's "individual mandate" -- which requires everyone to have health insurance -- to current rules in most states that require all drivers to purchase auto insurance
When CNN reported on the announcement of Senator Clinton's Health Care Proposal this how they explained it to the American people:
In her plan, Clinton said families would receive tax credits to help pay for coverage. The tax credit would be designed to limit the premiums to a percentage of a family's income. Federal subsidies would be provided for those who are not able to afford insurance, and large businesses would be expected to provide or help pay for their employees' insurance. Clinton said her plan would not require small businesses to take part, but will offer tax credits to encourage them to do so.
That's how the new Clinton plan was unveiled to the press and explained to the public in Des Moines, Iowa, last September.
The title of that article?
Clinton unveils mandatory health care insurance plan
Clearly, Senator Clinton has learned the lessons of 1993/1994 and has created an easy-to-explain, broadly popular, cohesive plan that is certain to win over the American public:
Who wouldn't support the Individual Mandates of the American Health Choices Plan?
Kucinich was the only one with a universal health care plan.
To call their plans universal health is simply a lie.
Even if democrats win the whitehouse and control congress they won't be able to garner the political will to overhaul the helthcare system.
Americans don't like being told what to do and they will not except a goverment system. They want the current system fixed, not overhauled.
Sooner the democrats figure that out the better off they'll be.
