What was the health care plan under Bush's presidency?
I know the 2008 election is coming up and issues like health care is being discussed. The candidates talk about how they're going to improve it by doing this and universal that, but I don't even know what it is right now. What is our health care plan? What were things Bush promised but didn't get to? I know a lot of people hate Bush, but please just don't say, he did everything wrong or soemthing. I jus twant to know abotu the health care thing Thanks for all the responses...I'm so sorry I'm clueless but what is a free market? I saw it mentioned a couple of times.
