In the latest brawl between Democratic presidential frontrunners Senator Hillary Clinton of New York and Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, the two of them squared off on health care. However, the two of them were attacking each other’s health care attack ads.
Recently, Obama launched an attack ad that criticizes Clinton’s universal health care plan.
Before the Wisconsin Democratic primary, a non-partisan group had supported Clinton’s claim that Obama’s health care plan was not universal.
Clinton responded to Obama’s attack ad by saying she was curious. She explains that while her plan covers everybody, Obama’s plan will exclude at least 15 million people. This was addressed in front of a crowd in York, Pennsylvania. In regards to the attack ads, Clinton had went on the counter-offensive.
“Instead of attacking the problem, he chose to attack my solution. I don’t think that we can just make speech about this,” Clinton said.
As the days prelude to the April 22 contest in Pennsylvania pass by, the attacks are going to continue to step up. So far, Obama has a marginal lead over Clinton. However, the two of them are virtually tied.
Ultimately, this may lead up to the superdelegates. Recently, DNC Chairman Howard Dean demanded the remaining undecided superdelegates to hurry up and make a decision immediately.
After Pennsylvania, the next major contest will be North Carolina, which holds in early May.
