"Want to see President Bush's plan for insuring the uninsured? Hold up a blank sheet of paper. Well, OK, it's not quite that bad, but it's close. He has offered tax-free health savings accounts for those who can afford to put money aside for their healthcare costs. Bush seems never to have witnessed a social problem that cannot be solved with a tax break. But what if you're a minimum-wage waitress with kids, and you can't afford to put money aside for healthcare costs? ... We can build a better system, if we want to. The first step is to demand a fair and balanced national healthcare debate, not just dueling campaign ads."
