The Washington Post's E.J. Dionne laid out the opposition to the plan, saying "People who disagree with this approach, or this approach all by itself, are saying that the health market is broken. Lots and lots of individuals simply can't go out there and buy an affordable policy because the market is so disaggregated and because costs are so high." Former Pentagon spokeswoman Torie Clarke explained Democratic alternatives to the plan. "The president is trying to inject some market forces into health care which is a good thing, I don't think he's going to be too successful, and the Democrats, my God, listen to Obama, are trying to promise every American superior health care all at the same cost. We are creeping towards socialized medicine."
