Bill Clinton: Bush’s health care plan will ‘be a disaster’

President Bill Clinton appeared on “Meet the Press” five times, including twice during his presidential campaign in 1992. On January 5, 1992, Clinton criticized President Bush’s plan to increase the cost of Medicare for the rich, saying, “It’ll be a disaster. It won’t do anything to control costs.” Clinton also assured the nation that there would be no surprises from his past, saying “there is nothing in my background which is inconsistent with what I have told you already.”
