Gov debate: Health care

What steps would you take if the Supreme Court

McKenna: Implement the health insurance exchange, expanded Medicaid program. We also need to look to insurance reform to create more competition. We need a market that is national. We also need liabilitly reform, reduce the cost of defensive medicine. Encourage more Washingtonians to move to consumer directed health care plans. I expect we will continue to be leaders.

Inslee: It is a value in the state of Washington that if you are a breast cancer survivor, you should be able to get health care insurance. . . You should be able to have your son or daughter on your insurance. I am disappointed our attorney general has tried to take that awaly.

McKenna: Inslee voted for a law advisers warned had an unconstitutional mandate. Medicaid could expand if the bill is overturned.

Inslee: If the bill is oveturned, we can't look to Uncle Sam.
