Durbin: The Free Enterprise System 'Created Unfairness' in Health Care
Durbin Criticizes Free Enterprise: 'Created Unfairness and Injustice' (CNS News)
In a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said free enterprise isn't always best. Government must step in.
"The free enterprise system is a strong system," he said, but it "created unfairness and injustice when it came to health care, which we are addressing with this Affordable Care Act."
In passing that law, Durbin said Democrats "rejected the free enterprise approach to health care and said let's have something that basically respects families."
