Paul Hodes: i trust the people of this country to make good choices when they have the choices to make. and i find it somewhat surprising that my colleagues in this chamber, most of them across the aisle, say it's good eough for me, but what i've got, oh, no, you don't need it, y leave it. all to the private insurance

Paul Hodes

1:31:24 to 1:31:44( Edit History Discussion )

Paul Hodes: companies, let's just leave it all i don't know what's going on with that, but i would think that certainly, choice is the right way to go. i can't imagine any constituent who wo represent, wouldn't want more choice in their health care, because we thrive on choice.

Paul Hodes

1:31:45 to 1:32:01( Edit History Discussion )

Paul Hodes: our competitive systems in this country, our economy, thrives on competition. so having it out there where private insurance companies, now there's some real rules. compete on a level playing field with the people of this country.
