Several governors around the nation have been speaking out in opposition or “with concern” about the health care plans being pushed by President Obama and Congressional Democrats. A New York Times article about this can be found here. In the article, New Mexico’s Bill Richardson is quoted as saying “I’m personally very concerned about the cost issue, particularly the $1 trillion figures being batted around.”
While not explicitly opposing the plan, Richardson’s comments are clearly negative and should be cheered by opponents of government-run health care. Of course, we all know that Richardson proposed his own government-run health care scheme a few years back. Richardson’s proposal was a bit more like the Massachusetts plan that is also failing, but there are enough differences between the two, that I suppose Richardson could support one and not the other.
At this point, an excellent question might be “What say you Diane Denish?”
