As I say, I will always love Hillary Clinton for how hard she fought to get dental care covered in her failed health care plan. Nothing more depressing than losing your teeth simply because you can’t afford to take care of them. From the report: One-quarter of adults aged 65 and older have lost ALL their teeth.

  1. A recent report by the Heart Association indicated that poor dental care was a major contributor to heart attacks. Now for a gratuitous question. Why did Bill Clinton not shepherd his health care bill through Congress himself? His hands off approach made no sense at the time and makes even less sense in hindsight. Perhaps Bill knew it would never pass and he didn’t want to spend any political capital on a lost cause? But the bills passage stood a far better chance with him trying to get it pased than it ever did with his wife pushing it.

  2. Though not 65 I am one of those… and all I’ve got to say is I don’t miss the pulling them myself (17 teeth), the abscesses and fevers. Be nice have dentures but (see above).
