Not the automakers — but the three frontrunners for the Democratic nomination for president in 2008 — gave their take on health care reform for the next presidential term(s).
With the exception of Sen. John Edwards, who released his plan in February, none really had a solid plan, but echoed common principles. (The other two I refer to are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton).
All tapped into the notion of shared responsibility and building on the existing system of employer-based coverage, while also trying to expand government-purchased health care as a stepping stone to a Medicare-for-all like system in the future.
It’s pretty encouraging when everyone’s talking about the same thing.
It was noted that Republicans were invited to talk about health care by the Center of American Progress, University of Nevada and Las Vegas, and Service Employees International Union, but none responded.
