Amy Lorentzen at Yahoo! News - Democrat presidential candidate John Edwards has revealed one price of his universal health care proposal, mandatory preventative care, for everybody. Why doesn't he go ahead and say it, he thinks we are all the state's property, so it is our duty to take care of ourselves however the state commands. [irc]

Edwards said his mandatory health care plan would cover preventive, chronic and long-term health care. The plan would include mental health care as well as dental and vision coverage for all Americans.

"The whole idea is a continuum of care, basically from birth to death," he said.
