Howard Dean has been chairman of the Democratic National Committee, a governor and presidential candidate. Yet the physician has had some unflattering things to say about his party’s health care reform bill.
Still, Dean will defend it and Democrats’ positions on other issues in a debate Friday with Karl Rove, President George W. Bush’s chief adviser. The free event, at 7:30 p.m. in UNLV’s Artemus Ham Hall, is part of the university’s Barrick Lecture Series.
You said you support Harry Reid. How does he win re-election when Nevada is faced with high unemployment? We’re now at 13.7 percent statewide, and it’s higher in Las Vegas.
The question is, do you want to elect a Republican who is in favor of big banks, voted in favor of health insurance companies, opposed health care reform, will dismantle Medicare and Social Security? A Republican administration is clearly not good for Nevada and it hasn’t been.
My argument if I’m Harry Reid is, “I’ve done a good job for Nevada while the Republicans have supported a lot of things that have hurt Nevada.”
