Today in False Promises
This week, I traveled to a hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where I visited with doctors and health care experts. We discussed an urgent priority for our Nation, how we can make health care coverage more affordable and accessible for all Americans.
That was how President Bush opened his weekly radio address one year ago today, on Feb. 24, 2007. And not a moment too soon, you might have said at the time, for the tens of millions of Americans lacking medical coverage had long since become a national crisis.
Is health care coverage one whit more affordable or accessible for all Americans now, as a result of Bush's (no doubt) intense year-long efforts toward that "urgent priority"?
I don't believe so.
