In health debate, Clinton remains vague on penalties

New York Times, February 4, 2008
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton came closer to explaining how she would enforce her proposal that everyone have health insurance, but declined to specify, as she has throughout the campaign, how she would penalize those who refuse. She added that the focus on enforcement clouded the more important point that her proposal to cover the uninsured was superior to Senator Barack Obama's because she would mandate coverage for all, but he would require it only for children.
