Two interesting stories: Hillary and Hugo

Hillary Clinton on her health care proposal:

"I have been fighting for universal health care for a long time, and I've got to tell you I will never give up on the very fundamental right that Americans should have, to have access to quality, affordable health care, no matter who they are," said Mrs. Clinton, New York Democrat. "Health care is a right, not a privilege."

Venezuela's dictator Hugo Chavez on the state control of private schools:

Education based on capitalist ideology has corrupted children's values, he [Chavez] said. "We want to create our own ideology collectively, creative, diverse." Chavez said Venezuelans --not Cubans as opponents suggest -- have been drawing up the new curriculum, but added that Venezuela could always accept Cuban help in the future.
