    Exclamation Obama's medical advisor disses his plan

    Elizabeth Edwards “not that fond” of Obama’s health care plan

    Rx for infighting

    Politics is full of compromises, right?

    Well, consider this example: Elizabeth Edwards – wife of former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards and currently a health care advisor to Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign – isn’t 100% behind the Democratic nominee’s health care plan.

    “We're on the verge of an Obama Presidency," said Edwards at George Washington University Monday night, and “I’m not that fond of his plan.” Edwards complained that Obama – like his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain -- views healthcare as a commodity, rather than a human right. Still, Edwards called the plan a step in the right direction – despite its lack of a "mandate for universality” – and said it wouldn’t scare people and politicians as had the Clinton administration’s attempt in 1993.

    However, Edwards’ critique of Obama’s plan doesn’t mean that she’s saving any love for McCain’s health care proposals. Edwards – who has battled breast cancer since 2004 – said McCain’s plan fails in all important areas by leaving the decision-making process up to individuals, who can frequently “make stupid economics decisions.”

    Welcome to USA Carry, Ashton.

    As for people being responsible for the decisions they make, imagine that? That statement is the very epitome of the socialist tilt that the Democratic Party has taken in the past couple of decades.

    I would love to live in a Democracy. Unfortunately, what we have now is mainly socialism thanks to the democrats and their news media.

    We're not quite there yet, but the bailout bill certainly has put us on the fast track toward it.
