Here's my question. If
(1) Obama, Clinton, and Edwards are prepared to stand by their pledges to provide health care for all Americans, and
(2) Congressional democrats are prepared to stand by their pledges for a balanced budget, then
(3) Are the aforementioned candidates prepared to raise taxes?
Edwards is on the record with a response, and I respect it. "Edwards: Universal Health Care Trumps Balanced Budget." Barack and Hillary, what say you?
Update: More evidence that Edwards has taken the lead on this from Ezra Klein. Worth checking out; the man speaks honestly and openly about the tough choices America will have to make when setting its priorities for the next presidential term.
