Howard Dean panned the health care reform bill currently in the Senate Finance Committee as one that "George Bush would love" because "it's a massive redistribution of government tax payers' money to the insurance industry":
Exactly the same thing that was going in the banking industry and other industries on Wall Street. It is a bad bill, the Finance Committee bill. It doesn't insure people and it spends an awful lot of money and it gives it away to the insurance companies. So I do think ultimately the bill will have a public option because I don't think the Democratic party is going to stand for this.
