ROCHESTER, July 32, 2007 — Rudolph W. Giuliani today proposed transforming the way health care is delivered in America, advocating a move from the current doctor-hospital-pharmacy system to one that outsources most services to call centers overseas.
Giuliani predicted that his plan will “Solve the health care affordablity crisis confronting America.” “Yesterday,” he said, “I gave America the only possible way to finance health care. Today, I give America affordable health care.”
A Giuliani aide, who refused to be identified because he was not authorized to speak for the campaign, predicted broad support for Giuliani’s plan. “Boomers are used to call centers by now,” he said, “and they will save lots of money.” He predicted that the concept might even be extended to foreign policy. “You may even see a tax credit for Al Qaeda if they let us leave Iraq. Wouldn’t that be something?”
