Thursday, April 3


Whooee. You don't want to be flippant or condescending towards this lady when it comes to one of the issues closest to her heart.

I freely admit that I am confused about the role of overnight funding in repurchase markets in the collapse of Bear Stearns. What I am not confused about is John McCain’s health care proposal. Apparently Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a senior policy advisor to McCain, thinks I do “not understand the comprehensive nature of the senator’s proposal.” The problem, Douglas, is that, despite fuzzy language and feel-good lines in the Senator’s proposal, I do understand exactly how devastating it will be to people who have the health conditions with which the Senator and I are confronted (melanoma for him, breast cancer for me) but do not have the financial resources we have. In very unconfusing language: they are left outside the clinic doors.

Then she goes on to address the weaknesses in the McCain plan.

Hillary's plan for universal coverage is much closer to the Edwards' proposals than Obama's.
