Like many Republicans, McCain is pushing for new tax credits that would put individual insurance on a more equal footing with employer-sponsored insurance
He wants safety protocols that would allow importation of cheaper drugs from foreign countries, a possible cost-saving measure that has been loudly opposed by the pharmaceutical industry. He’d also support clinics in retail outlets, which have been spreading rapidly despite objections from many doctors’ groups.
“I don’t think there should be mandates for health insurance.”
“I’m not gonna force Americans to do it. I don’t think that’s the role of government….If we bring down health-care costs more Americans are going to be able to afford it.”
“We’re going to have to have a Medicaid fund that will provide those people with sufficient funds to get health insurance.”
“You will be gauged and paid by how” well the patient fares.
“We should not be paying for medical errors.”

McCain Likes Retail Clinics, Drug Imports and Tax Credits
Its too bad we can't clone some of these candidates into one great candidate.
