7. Such a deal...
Clinton would offer expanded versions of two existing government programs: Medicare, and the health insurance plan currently offered to federal employees.

My wife works for the federal government, and we're covered by "the health insurance plan currently offered to federal employees." I don't know the exact premium, but it's over $300 per month. Is HRC suggesting an "individual mandate" program where people who aren't covered by their employers be required to shell out that much, or more, per month?

Oh, but of course she'll make it easier to afford such an expense by giving out tax cuts/credits. From which party have I heard that "solution" before?

Right now, HRC is combining the worst of Republican (laissez-faire support for Big Insurance) and Democratic (forcing everyone to buy something mandated by the government) stereotypes. And this is supposed to be the solution to our health-care crisis???
