Terry McAuliffe: ‘Health Care Is a Right’

‘Everybody’s entitled to health care and we ought to be able to deliver this in a way that everybody gets covered’

EXCERPT:

McAULIFFE: "There’s got to be cost savings to it. Listen, everybody understands that we need — there are things in this bill that we need to fix to make it more cost effective and efficient. We could do that. We run these programs in our states. What Washington does lands on our desk. We administrate these programs. We have all brought efficiencies in our respective states. I wouldn’t say get all 50 governors back, but let us be part of the process, the input, so that we can bring what our best practices are. We run these programs but we have to save money. We have to do it in efficient way, but at the same time health care is a right. Everybody’s entitled to health care and we ought to be able to deliver this in a way that everybody gets covered."
