John McCain Uses Performance of the Financial Industry to Sell His Health Care Plan?
In an article for the Sept / Oct. 08′ issue of Contingencies Magazine titled Better Health Care at Lower Cost for Every American, John McCain writes:
Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.
This just shows how aligned John McCain is with the failed Bush / Republican economic policies of deregulation. It also just further discredits his claim that he some how saw this crises coming and tried to warn us all back in 2006 but no one listened. I mean earlier this month he’s bragging about the success of the deregulated banking industry? And this is the type of model he wants to use for our health care system?
