17. Dean supported this past his real comfort level. But once they took out the last tool to bring down
costs and make this affordable (Medicare byuy-in), he threw in the towel.

Dean has been a WARRIOR for the bill - until it became not much more than a giveaway to insurance companies. You cannot have mandates WITHOUT cost controls.

Howard Dean is on the right side of history.
