'National Shame' Will Propel Obama's 'Universal' Health to Victory
Answering a question from World News anchor David Muir on Sunday night about the likelihood health care reform will pass, Johnson predicted:
I think there's going to be an intense, partisan debate. But ultimately, David, there is just one fact I want to let everybody hear: We spend more than twice as much, per person, on health care in his country as the average of all other industrialized countries, yet we're the only one that doesn't have universal coverage. That's a national shame and I think ultimately that's what's going to unite Democrats and Republicans.In a NewsBusters item last October, “ABC's Dr. Tim Johnson, 15 Years of Shilling for Universal Care,” Scott Whitlock cited numerous earlier examples of Johnson's left-wing advocacy.
