Healthcare up to public, Edwards says

New York Times, January 25, 2008
Democratic Presidential candidate John Edwards does not discount the possibility that his healthcare proposal could evolve into a federalized system like those in Canada and many European countries. His proposal would allow Americans to buy new government insurance packages modeled on Medicare. But Edwards emphasizes that the choice would be made not in Washington, but by consumers in an open marketplace where private insurance competes with government plans.
