PRO-CON: Is Clinton health care plan viable? YES

Again, anything is 'viable' if you have enough money. The problem is that Democrats, and this article was written by a Democratic representative from New York, believe that there is an unlimited supply of money through tax increases. Nothing will do more damage to the economy and growth than oppressive tax and spend government. The more they tax, the less revenue they will have for not only new programs, but old programs as well. I can only assume that they are trying to make the budget for non-military spending so high that they have to cut the military (which is the only thing that the government is obligated to pay for in a capitalistic society). Anyway, this blog covers all views, not just ones I agree with. Enjoy the article:

PRO-CON: Is Clinton health care plan viable? YES

Health care will be the defining domestic policy issue of the 2008 presidential contest. Hillary Clinton’s American Health Choices Plan is the best proposal for reforming our ailing health-care system because it covers every American, while also improving health-care quality and making insurance more affordable for all.

Clinton’s new plan offers the guarantee of health insurance for every American while sharing the costs among all stakeholders, expanding the choices that are available, and building on what works in the current system.

If you like the insurance you have, you keep it. If you don’t have coverage or the coverage you have is inadequate, you can choose from dozens of the same plans that are offered to members of Congress, like me, or a Medicare-style public plan. The plan requires all Americans to buy health insurance, if they don’t already have it, and offers tax credits to make coverage affordable for all.

Hillary Clinton’s American Health Choices Plan would do just that while lowering costs, improving quality and preserving choice.

That’s the right prescription for American families and the economy.

U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, New York Democrat
