Why is this country, at this time, the richest in the world, arguing about how few or how many children they can serve? We ought to â€” this is a no-brainer. The American people want all of its children served. All children deserve health coverage, and I donâ€™t know why weâ€™re having such a hard time getting our president and our political leaders to get it, that children should have health insurance. â€”Marian Wright Edelman
I believe government cannot provide affordable health care. I believe it would cause the quality of care to diminish. I believe there would be lines and rationing over time. If Congress continues to insist upon expanding health care through the SCHIP program â€” which, by the way, would entail a huge tax increase for the American people â€” Iâ€™ll veto the bill. â€”George W. Bush
Pretty much says it all. This man has not the vaguest idea of what it means to be anything other than pampered-from-birth. Doesn’t see any problem with the free heathcare the government provides for him â€” just doesn’t think it would work out for all those poor children.
