President Bush and Healthcare

Tonight: (Of Senator Kerry’s plan to give families access to the same health care that Congress gets.) “It’s an empty promise.” “It’s too expensive.” “It’s a bait and switch.”

June 30, 2003: “A consumer-friendly system is one that says we trust the consumers to make the best choice. Senior citizens are consumers, and therefore, the plan ought to match your needs, not the needs designed by a bureaucrat — not your needs as decided by a bureaucrat in Washington, D.C. If choice is good enough for Congress, it ought to be good enough for the seniors in America.”

Question: Why are seniors entitled to this healthcare, but not families?
