Obama supports mandates, he supports garnishment of wages and fines for deadbeats
Yet he's criticizing Hillary for mandates when he does the same thing in his plan for children. It's asinine.

2. He's saying the mandates do not provide universal coverage
He's saying they're worthless without teeth, which he has apparently provided according to your info. He is saying that her attack that he isn't providing universal coverage is meaningless, because she isn't it.

Another words, she's a liar.

And I don't support his garnishments either, if his plan doesn't have real monthly subsidies to help people pay for care.

Obama said he is open to assessing fines against parents who fail to enroll their children in health care.

If they don't have health care, we will work with the parents to make sure that it's provided and it would be mandatory, he said. Parents would not have an option. I would fine parents if for some reason they refused.

One way to fine parents is for the government to withhold the costs of a child s insurance from a parent�s paycheck, said David Cutler, a Harvard University economics professor who advised Obama on his health care reform plan.

�robably the easiest way to treat it is like deadbeat dads and say, Look you have this obligation and if you don�t do it voluntarily, we will do it for you, Cutler said in a telephone interview today.

What really matters is not whether you've required insurance, but how much it costs and whether it is affordable and accessible, Cutler said.

6. Both of them are full of shit on health care
Forcing people to support the same insurance companies that are the root of all of our health care financing problems is not a solution at all.
