WASHINGTON — Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards said Sunday his plan for universal health care would require higher taxes and cost up to $120 billion year.
"We're asking everybody to share in the responsibility of making health care work in this country," said the 2004 vice presidential nominee and former North Carolina senator.
"Yes, we'll have to raise taxes. The only way you can pay for a health care plan that costs anywhere from $90 (billion) to $120 billion is there has to be a revenue source."
