Democrats give up ground on healthcare

Interesting article from Glen Johnson.....
Kennedy, it said, "favors Clinton health care reform plan and is committed to universal coverage. Wants employers to provide coverage for their employees and to pay part of the costs."

Romney, by contrast, "opposes requiring employers to contribute to cost
of health care plans for their employees. Prefers providing subsidies for health coverage for low-income individuals and providing tax incentives to individuals ... for the purchase of health care."

Twelve years later, the Massachusetts House and Senate compromised on a plan that sounded closer to what Romney -- not Kennedy -- had suggested.
