The Republican line is not going to make it this time around. You know the drill. Government can't help you, but you need help---so help yourself---you whiner. The health care situation in America is awful and people in all states are being having trouble keeping up their coverage if they have any at all. McCain's line is beyond stupid.
McCain: I do not believe in mandates. I believe that every American should have affordable and available health care and I'd like to talk just an additional minute about that. But I'm not going to mandate that they do. I want every American to have affordable and available education. But I'm not going to mandate that they do.
Calling the Democratic Party's fervor to make health care available to everyone "socialized medicine" will not play and the more McCain tries to paint it that way the better off we'll be.
