Dean Rips Health Care Bill

In an interview on ABC News, Howard Dean stepped up his attacks on the Senate health care bill urging Democrats to start over using the budget reconciliation process that requires only 51 votes to pass.

Said Dean: "This is a bigger bailout for the insurance industry than AIG. Very small number of people will get insurance, if at all, until 2014."

"This is the insurance companies' dream, this bill," Dean added.

The Note: "For the record, the White House position on health care is far closer to Joe Lieberman's than Howard Dean's. Yes, only one of them gets a vote. But only one of them is a Democrat, too."
