Health Care Reform From One Person's Perspective

Democrats Debate Access versus Affordability in South Carolina

Posted by Alan on January 22, 2008


Health care reform was a hot topic during the presidential candidate’s debate in South Carolina on Tuesday. Senator Hillary Clinton and former Senator John Edwards claimed universal coverage was the most important priority while Senator Barack Obama put affordability at the top of his list. This dichotomy mirrors the debate California experienced with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger insisting on coverage for all and the legislature’s Democratic leadership questioning the fairness of requiring individuals to buy coverage they couldn’t afford.

I’ve written more about this somewhat strange, but probably not surprising, echo of California’s health care reform debate on the political blog.
