There's been a lot of talk in the last few months about a
national health program.
President Carter's as compared with Senator Kennedy's?
Yes, and I was about to ask, what is your position vis-a-vis
the two of them?
My position is that Senator Kennedy is right, and that
a bill will be traded off between Senator Kennedy and more
conservative people, and eventually in the next few years we
will eventually get some kind of a national health program.
That's the prognosis.
