44. Gore, Kucinich.
As for Edwards' plan you can actually read about it on his website. /

Require businesses and other employers to either cover their employees or help finance their health insurance.
Make insurance affordable by creating new tax credits, expanding Medicaid and SCHIP, reforming insurance laws, and taking innovative steps to contain health care costs.
Create regional Health Care Markets purchasing pools to give every American the bargaining power to purchase an affordable, high-quality health plan, increase choices among insurance plans, and cut costs for businesses offering insurance.
Once these steps have been taken, require all American residents to get insurance.

Every part of his plan involves getting people INSURANCE, not health care. It winds up continuing to feed into the problem, which is the middle man system.

Just like his tax plan, he fails to follow through on his rhetoric.
