McCain is finishing up the South Carolina leg of his "No Surrender Tour"
LEXINGTON, South Carolina (CNN) — Sen. John McCain, campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination here Monday, invoked the high-pitched battle over Hillary Clinton's 1993 health care plan when asked to comment on Sen. Clinton's new proposal.
"I haven't seen it, but if it's anything like the last time around where they wanted to have a complete government takeover of the health care system in America with a huge number of new bureaucracies being invented for government, I will oppose it vigorously," McCain told reporters.
Sen. Clinton unveiled her health care plan in Des Moines Monday. It would require all Americans to have health insurance, and she estimated it would cost $110 billion a year in government funds.
