During her campaign in Ankeny, Iowa, Hillary Clinton says that the plan that Barack Obama envisioned does not cover all Americans. She accused Obama for misleading voters about the limitations about his proposal.
Clinton said while Obama called his plan universal and then changing it to virtually universal. She said that Obama’s plan does not deserve to be labeled as universal.
“When it comes to truth in labeling, his plan simply flunks the best.”
So, both Clinton and former North Carolina Senator John Edwards support a plan mandating that Americans have healthcare coverage. Under Hillary Clinton, her plan would require insurance companies to offer coverage to anyone that applies.
But Obama does not support that and explains the reason people do not have healthcare because of the expenses and not that they do not want it. He explains that his plan would create a national health insurance program for those that do not have it provided by their employers.
While Obama’s plan does not have a mandate for all American, it mandates that all children have coverage.
While Clinton criticized Obama, he criticized her back for not clarifying on how the mandate would be enforced.
