Bush's Weak Health Care Card Coming Up
How pathetic.I guess his complete disaster in Iraq leaves him few cards left to play.
Some creative Governors have put forth their own state plans in part because the Feds were doing nothing while the US Health Care System significantly worsened during "W"s six year is office. And now the Dems, finally on the Federal level,- especially none other than Dr.Howard Dean- are planning major Federal overhauls of our broken system in rapid economic meltdown.
Credible polls, by the way, have ranked health care as a major priority for the American public for at least 4 years.
The proposal, according to the Washington Post that Bush will put forth, would give those who buy their own health care coverage the same tax benefits now enjoyed by those with employer-sponsored plans. Bush also will announce steps next week to take some federal money now going to hospitals and institutions and give it to states for programs to get medical coverage for the more than 46 million people without insurance.
Well if there was ever an example of "too little too late" this is it!
I am almost too embarrassed for the President and the Nation to watch
But being a good and forever hopefull US citizen I will tune in and urge you to do so also
