Senators told to tread carefully on healthcare
Reuters/Yahoo News, May 7, 2008
Donna Shalala, who served as Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Bill Clinton, is urging lawmakers to build broad public support before embarking on any reform. Shalala told the Senate Finance Committee that public support for Clinton's health reform effort in the early 1990s diminished as people with health insurance began to worry about what it would mean for their coverage. Clinton's 1990s proposal also faced staunch opposition from the healthcare industry.
