McCain: Government government government. Obama will fine people for not having health insurance. And of course you ought to be able to go across state lines. Tax only Cadillac plans, financing hair transplants.
Another stupid question from Brokaw: is health care a right, a privilege, or a responsibility? McCain ducks. Obama says it’s a right. Mandate on parents to buy health insurance for their kids? Why not? It’s cheap, and we can’t have kids going to emergency rooms for asthma. Insurance companies cheat their customers, and they’ll go to the least-regulated state to help them do so.
