[Music] McCain: The problem with health care in America is not the quality of health care, it's the availability and the affordability.  And that has to do with the dramatic increase in the cost of health care.

Let's give every American family a $5,000 refundable tax credit so that they can go out across state lines and get the insurance policy that suits them best.

I can characterize my approach on health care by choice and competition, affordability and availability.

We need community health centers.  We need walk-in clinics.  We understand that emergency room care is the most expensive in America.

There's many, many solutions to this problem.  I think we can address them.  The fundamental problem is not the quality of health care; it's the cost of health care.  So health care must be made affordable and available.

I'm John McCain and I approve this message.
