McCain’s Health Plan: Don’t Get Sick

We stand by our words and want to list what some other well-informed people have to say:

Elaine Rose/Mo West, Seattle Post-Intelligencer: The McCain health care proposal, which would “deregulate the health insurance industry,” is “worse for women” than the Obama plan, Rose, CEO of Planned Parenthood VOTES Washington, and West, chair of the group, write in a Post-Intelligencer opinion piece. Under the McCain proposal, “30 million women who suffer from a pre-existing condition could lose their coverage,” and the plan would eliminate “important state insurance requirements aimed at protecting women’s access to basic health needs,” the authors write. They write, “After the recent financial catastrophe, we’ve all seen just how disastrous an unregulated and excessively greedy banking system has been for our country,” adding, “We can’t let the same thing happen to health care — it’s just too important” (Rose/West, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 10/29).

Al Franken, St. Paul Pioneer Press: “I like Obama’s approach, and I would proudly support it,” but “I’ll be blunt: I think McCain’s health care proposal would be a disaster for Minnesota families,” Franken, a U.S. Senate candidate from Minnesota, writes in a Pioneer Press opinion piece. According to Franken, the Obama proposal would ensure that, “if you have health insurance that works for you … you get to keep it,” reduce costs “by as much as $200 billion a year” and “guarantee that insurance companies cover pre-existing conditions and preventive health measures.” Meanwhile, under the McCain proposal, “as many as 580,000 Minnesotans could outright lose their employer-sponsored health care, and we’d all be at the mercy of the insurance companies,” Franken writes (Franken, St. Paul Pioneer Press, 10/29).
