Is Hilary the Healthcare Presidential Candidate?
Hilary has been quoted as saying she "wants to be the health care president" Her opponent John Edwards has implied she may become one by negotiating compromises with the insurance and pharmaceutical industries. This would be a shame since in my opinion allowing these two industries a large voice in our health care reforms is similar to putting the fox in charge of the hen house. Let us hope that our national health care debate can tackle real issues and come up with some meaningful changes that provide a more equitable health care system, one that provides quality healthcare to all. Universal Coverage is a tantalizing idea, but we must be aware that we, the public, will have to pay for it.
