WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:

Yesterday Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton unveiled her health care plan. The proposal provides new options for buying coverage and tax credits to help pay for them.

The New York senator made the rounds of the morning talk shows today to sell the plan.

Clinton says by rescinding the Bush tax cuts, she will pay for half of the $110-billion a year plan.

Eric Kotke is the senior research director of Campaign For America’s Future, a liberal think tank based in Washington. We spoke to him today for analysis of the Clinton proposal.

We began by asking him about her idea – like John Edwards and Mitt Romney’ plan in Massachusetts - of mandating that everyone must have insurance.
