“By mandating coverage for children, making health insurance affordable and enrollment easy, we expect to cover every American. Our plan has allocated enough subsidy dollars to accomplish this. If we find that after the plan is implemented all Americans are not covered, we will look to see who is not covered and why and take appropriate action to make sure we get to universal coverage. We have the resources set aside in the plan to do whatever turns out to be necessary to cover everyone.” – Dan Pfeiffer, Obama spokesman
In response to Obama’s plan, Mark Kornblau (Edwards spokesman) said the following: “John Edwards has a detailed plan to make health care coverage more affordable and truly universal. He believes that incremental measures are not enough. Any plan that does not cover all Americans is simply inadequate.”
Obama’s plan calls for universal access, but since it doesn’t mandate health insurance for adults, may not cover everyone.
