Maybe the senate...
Nixon didn't offer "nationalized health-care". Quit reading all your leftisit horeshit. He "offered" an extension of medicaid that would be "subsidized". The reason the dems didn't like it, was because even they knew there was nothing to it.
I have to remind myself how grateful this nation was for Nixon. After all, Kennedy drug us into Viet Nam, followed by LBJ, who escalated it 10-fold. Finally, after 65,000 Americans died, NIXON, a REPUBLICAN, pulls the country out!
Wasn't Obozo going to end the Iraq war? Oopsy! He added another war!
As long as you defend this clown, you're on the losing end, buddy.
My your memory is poor.
Nixon’s Plan for Universal Health Care
By the time of President Richard Nixon’s election to office, the debate over health care had once again resurfaced. In the same vein as Teddy Roosevelt’s proposed “Square Deal”, which had first broached national health insurance as a political topic in 1912, Nixon proposed a plan that would provide health insurance for all Americans.
Similar to the situation faced by President Johnson, partisan opposition to Nixon's policies was firmly entrenched. In this instance, few were prepared to label the renowned anti-communist president as an advocate for socialism.
Instead his opponents, such as Senator Edward “Teddy” Kennedy of Massachusetts, attacked Nixon on the grounds that he was offering a deal that would see the insurance companies benefit.
Nixon, for his part, was stalwart in his belief that a national health insurance plan was vital to the country’s future. He stated in his 1974 State of the Union Address that “The time is at hand this year to bring comprehensive, high quality health care within the reach of every American.” Nixon’s own past experience with poverty and family illness made this a personal issue for the President. Yet Nixon’s call for an employer mandate to provide health insurance as part of his planned universal health care coverage for all citizens was seen as inadequate by many democrats in congress.
The plan was also opposed by powerful unions such as the AFL-CIO and the United Autoworkers, who lobbied hard to defeat the legislation.
At least obozo is in the right country.
Your man wasted 2 trillion in iraq when NONE OF THE 9/11 TERRORISTS WERE EVEN FROM THERE!
