If you have mandates Obama explains: “Everyone will be forced to buy health insurance.” He argues the issue is cost. Well, that’s progress. If we can get all the GOP contenders on board we’ll be making progress. UPDATE: Hillary is a bit shrill but gives a barn burning speech in favor of universal coverage. Says it’s a core Democratic value and she’s not leaving anyone out. Obama comes back and says it’s not working in Massachusetts –people are willing to take the fine and not get coverage. Oh boy, there are some notetakers in the GOP camps tonight.
