WATCH: Dean Clashes with Colbert on Real Healthcare Reform

Posted By dpacheco On June 24, 2009 @ 9:34 am In Politics & Social Justice | No Comments

Former Governor of Vermont and former chair of the Democratic National Committee Dr. Howard Dean [1] sparred with a freshly buzz-cut Stephen Colbert on last night’s Colbert Report. The topic under discussion (besides the Governor’s poisonous liberal kidneys)? Real healthcare reform, and Dr. Dean’s new book / roadmap to reform, Howard Dean’s Prescription for Real Healthcare Reform: How We Can Achieve Affordable Medical Care for Every American and Make Our Jobs Safer [2].

Colbert was in top form—but that kind of goes without saying—and Dr. Dean was quick on his feet as well, poking fun at the three-page, no-numbers, Republican healthcare “plan,” while managing to get a word in edgewise about the 50 million uninsured in this country.
