ONE on ONE
In the first clip, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Robin Carnahan explains why she's open to a public option to help revamp the healthcare system.
"What I think this is really about is getting things done for folks and not staking out hard and fast partisan positions."
"We've got to create a system that creates pricing pressure and so I'm open for however we do that."
"There's already somebody standing between you and your doctor. It's called the insurance companies."
"Congressman Roy Blunt and I disagree about this. He seems satisfied with how things are working in healthcare. I don't."
In the second clip, Carnahan grapples with the issue of cost -- and is less specific about which taxpayers should bare the burden of paying for healthcare reform. She also attempts to clarify her position on the economic stimulus package.
"We've got to come up with money somewhere and what I'm against is having it be on middle class folks and small businesses."
"I'm not going to take a position on what that number is."
"When you walk up to me and give me some binary choice about something somebody else decided -- am I for it or against it -- I'd probably come up with a different plan."
