    Maybe for John McCain the American dream means seven houses-and if that's your America, John McCain is your candidate. But for the rest of us, the American dream means one home - in a safe neighborhood, with good schools and good health care and a little money left over every month to go out for dinner and save for the future. Does that seem like too much to ask? John McCain thinks it is.

    What the Affordable Care Act started was a change in the American health care system from paying for procedures to paying for outcomes, paying for health.

And she worked together with Democrats and Republicans to get health insurance for eight million low-income American children in the CHIP program.
