Bush Supports Health Care Reform
Okay-you are on to Izzy's tricks by now, aren't you? Barbara Bush, the daughter of President George Bush and Laura Bush, appeared on Fox News and was supportive of President Obama's Health Care legislation (aka "Obamacare") and expressed that she was happy it passed. I recall seeing Jenna Bush, her twin sister, on Larry King Live before the election where she seemed to hint that she supported Barack Obama over John McCain. (Side Note-Jenna wrote a book called Ana about a 17 year old living with HIV. Anyone read it?) Not a fan of George W. Bush, but he certainly married an intelligent woman and helped raised terrific, open-minded daughters. I'll give him that!
(CNN) - One of the daughters of former President George W. Bush isn't following the Republican Party line when it comes to the issue of the health care legislation that cleared Congress last spring without any GOP support.
In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Barbara Bush said she's "glad" Democrats passed the massive spending measure and President Barack Obama signed it into law.
"Why do, basically, people with money have good health care and why do people who live on lower salaries not have good health care?" the 28-year old said. "Health should be a right for everyone."
Asked specifically what she though about the president's health care initiative, Bush replied with a smile, "That is a good question - obviously the health care reform bill was highly debated by a lot of people and I guess I'm glad the bill was passed."
