Essential Estrogen: Before Leaving Des Moines Stage, Clinton's Health Care Plan Under Fire

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Things move fast in Iowa. Within minutes of New York Sen. Hillary
Rodham Clinton's unveiling of a mandatory health insurance plan in Des
Moines critiques were rolling in from rivals on both sides of the
political fence. "While she talks about the political scars she bears,
the personal scars borne by the American people are far greater," said
Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd, who is also seeking the Democratic
presidential nomination. "The mismanagement of the effort in 1993 and
1994 has set back our ability to move toward universal health care
immeasurable. We've known what the problems have been for nearly 15
years, and what the solutions could be. What's been missing is
leadership that knows how to bring people together and get the job
done." Dodd went on to add that affordable health care will take more
than leadership "that simply knows how to fight -- it will take
leadership that knows how to bring people together and win."
