Health Plan Fades Away, Bush to Bush

Los Angeles Times
April 24, 2001
by Matthew Miller

In response to the April 20 headline in the Washington Post, "Insurance Plan Would Help 6 Million, White House Says," Matthew Miller creates a fictional interview of Dick Cheney by Tim Russert:

Tim Russert: But wouldn't you agree the problem (uninsured) is bigger now, and we have more money to address it? Dick Cheney: Yes, that's why we're taking decisive action. Tim Russert: But how decisive is it for the 37 million uninsured your plan, by your own admission, ignores?

Comment: For a quality two minute break, it will be worth your time to read the interview that, as Matthew Miller says, "the nation needs." It is available at:

Really, take a break and enjoy this masterpiece.
