LANCASTER, Pa. - Teresa Heinz Kerry said Wednesday that "only an idiot" would fail to support her husband's health care plan.
"Of course, there are idiots," Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, told the (Lancaster) Intelligencer Journal for Thursday's editions.
Kerry's proposal includes health care subsidies for children, the unemployed, small companies and more; and government assistance to insurers and employers that keep premiums for workers down.
If Kerry is elected, Heinz Kerry predicted that opponents of his health care plan would be voted out of office. "Only an idiot wouldn't like this," she said.
Heinz Kerry stumped in Lancaster, Harrisburg and York on Wednesday, the third day of a four-day campaign swing Pennsylvania.
"I don't have to sell it - the people want it," Heinz Kerry said of the health plan. "The common man doesn't look at me as some rich witch. I talk about what I see. It has always been so. You judge people not by their pocketbook but by their actions. Walk the walk."

This woman is not suitable to be First Lady. She apparently thinks she is talking "straight talk" but she sounds like what she is...a vulgar colonial African who lucked out and married a rich American.
Sooner rather than later!
Well gee, I guess I don't want to be an idiot, so I'll have to vote for Kerry ?!?!? Great way to win over new converts - insult them.
Guess I'm not common..
Just when I was wondering "WHERE'S TERESA?", there she is flapping her jaws again!
"common man doesn't look at me as some rich witch"
No, but it rhymes with witch.
She is a political gardening tool.
The common man? LOL What kind of language is that coming from a dem? It certainly is nice of her to look down upon us common pheasants and pretend she cares about us.... She is at least good for a laugh!
Rhymes with blunt, too.
"Of course, there are idiots,"
Yeah, one of 'em is married to John Kerry!
I'm paying my own medical. I do not have illegitimate children, do not do drugs, am not an alchoholic.
I work my little butt off and yes, when I needed extra money, I got a second job and it was menial work but so what. It enabled me to do my duty and meet my obligations.
Well, Terayzah, how about disclosing your tax records? And have your husband release his service records. That's walking the walk.
I couldn't agree more-even with all the money her family had, and all the money she married into at least one aspect of her education was obviously neglected-common, everyday good manners-what a condescending bitch.
"The common man? LOL What kind of language is that coming from a dem?"
Ha Ha! Let them eat Botox!
As her husband might say: "Who among us does not love my health care plan?"
Keep up the great work, Evita, But don't cry for me free health care. Maybe you've got a few TRILLION you can pitch in! By the way, have you watched hubby's home movies lately? Are the servants keeping his medals nice and shiney?
"Guess I'm not common"
You got that right.
Except, really, I guess she's telling the truth in a nuanced sort of a way, because I wouldn't call her a rich "witch" either...
Hey, she's just one of us, isn't she? ..common billionairess with a big mouth.
