"Today, we learned that more than 2 million Americans have lost their health insurance over the past year.  As President, George Bush has done nothing to help ordinary Americans struggling for health care coverage, but has handed out billions of dollars in tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.  When I am President, I will repeal the tax cut for the wealthiest Americans to provide uninsured Americans with the health care coverage they and their families desperately need.

"Millions of Americans are uninsured because they can't afford it.  And the millions who have health insurance are staggering under the weight of their health care bills, and their plight has been ignored too often. 

"My health care plan will extend health care coverage to 96 percent of Americans and nearly every child in this country by offering them the very same insurance that the President and Members of Congress give themselves.  My plan also makes health care more affordable so that more Americans who are lucky enough to have coverage are able to keep it."
