Veep Debate Fact Check

For the record, Obama’s plan does NOT mandate health coverage, as Gov. Palin suggested last night. That was the big “difference” between his plan and the Clinton plan.

That’s all I can remember, at this very moment, that annoyed me (on health care specifically)….I guess ….other than the fact that Palin didn’t answer the question about why the McCain health care plan would increase taxes on the middle class.

Here’s a side-by-side of the two plans, by the way.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
