McCain Plays POW Card to Avoid Healthcare Question
Posted on October 1st, 2008 by NCDem Amy -

During an interview with the Des Moines Register, John McCain became defensive and played the POW card when asked if he’s always had taxpayer financed health care coverage.  “There was a time in my life where the healthcare was not so good,” McCain stated, referring to his time as a POW.

McCain opposes universal health care, taxpayer financed, that would cover all Americans.

As TPM reveals, McCain hid behind the POW card throughout this interview.  And click here for more on how McCain has been overplaying the POW card to skirt the issues, and how his POW experience alone does not qualify him to lead.
