The economic growth attributed to Clinton actually started with Reagan's policies.
Seems to be a little revisionist history here ;)
My recollection of the why George 1 got the boot is there was a recession on. And George 1 himself called Reagan's trickle down policies "voodoo economics." Ever since Reagan died the right has been trying to lionize him. No doubt he was a pretty good prez, but you can't tie every good thing that happened in the last 30 years to his presidency.
Bill Clinton screwed up a lot of stuff. His policy on terrorism is a perfect example. But economically, he was pretty strong. Much better the George 2.
Regarding health care. It's not as another poster said, "You all get crappy health care," but we all get pretty good health care.
As it is right now, only some of us get average care.
If you take the time to look at the stats. The US trails every developed country with universal health care in real measures of quality: life expectancy, prenatal care, access to primary care. What scares people is that some people in those other countries have to wait for elective surgeries or expensive high-end treatments like the Gamma knife for treating cancer or the MRI for a hurt knee.
So, given that we already have an unequal system where some get great care and some don't we should run with it and at least give everyone basic care.
We should set a system that gives all of us access to a basic set of primary services. And, allows people to buy up for the fancy treatments that they want. Essentially preserving the aspects of our system that people want but building a stronger universal, tax-funded safety net for all of us.
Yes, there are scary stories from Canada, the UK and other countries with universal health insurance. But who hasn't heard a scary story about someone whose insurance company denied them care right here.
The #1 reason for bankruptcy in the US (at least until the mortgage crisis) was medical debt.
