Bush Speechwriter Thinks Healthcare Reform Is Here to Stay
Despite the claims of folks like McCollum that healthcare reform will be repealed, former George W. Bush speechwriter is less sanguine:
“No illusions please: This bill will not be repealed. Even if Republicans scored a 1994 style landslide in November, how many votes could we muster to re-open the ‘doughnut hole’ and charge seniors more for prescription drugs? How many votes to re-allow insurers to rescind policies when they discover a pre-existing condition? How many votes to banish 25 year-olds from their parents' insurance coverage?"
