McCain nudges Obama toward Republican health plans

New York Times, January 25, 2010

Senator John McCain advised President Obama that the way to get meaningful changes passed is to "start from the beginning" by meeting with Republicans. McCain, a Republican from Arizona, said on the CBS news program "Face the Nation" that President Obama should sit down with Republican leaders and begin adopting some of their ideas for improving the nation's healthcare system such as overhauling medical malpractice lawsuits, allowing residents of one state to buy health insurance from a company in another state, and granting tax credits for people who purchase health insurance on their own.
