Hillary Clinton's Legacy: Health Insurance Truth
Date:6/14/2008

Say Bob Weiner and John Larmett in Palm Beach Post; Basis for Next

Administration and Congress

WASHINGTON, June 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Beyond her persistence and her historic effort as a female presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton's campaign legacy is health insurance truth," say former Chief of Staff of the U.S. House Aging Committee and Health Subcommittee and spokesman for the White House Drug Policy Office, Robert Weiner, and John Larmett, legislative assistant to Sen. Gaylord Nelson (D-WI) and Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA).

In an op-ed in the Palm Beach Post, Weiner and Larmett point out, "McCain would provide tax credits (which further enriches the insurance industry) and would replace policies from employers who now cover pre-existing illnesses with new individual policies that would not necessarily do so."

"Sen. Clinton's health plan, on the other hand, institutes a requirement for everyone to be provided coverage -- not just the opportunity to purchase if prices ever go lower. Calling voluntary health insurance 'universal coverage' could be like the current Administration's failed attempt to change Social Security to voluntary IRA's," Weiner and Larmett contend. Forty-seven million Americans do not have health insurance. Half of all Americans are unprepared financially to cope with a costly medical emergency.

Weiner and Larmett commend Sen. Obama's gracious nod to Clinton on the issue in his speech June 3rd: "When we finally win the battle for universal health care in this country, she will be central to that victory."

Weiner and Larmett note, "We are the only civilized country that does not have universal medical coverage. Our enormously profitable health insurance companies ($60 billion dollars in profits in 2006), drug companies (the top ten made $80 billion in 2006), and hospitals ($29 billion profits in 2005) make sure we do not."

The authors contend, "Universal coverage
