Earlier this month, Elizabeth Edwards, who is now a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, criticized Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) health plan because it doesn’t guarantee coverage for people who have pre-existing conditions — like both Edwards and McCain. She also noted that McCain had benefited from government-run health care his whole life. On ABC’s This Week yesterday, McCain called Edwards’ criticism a “cheap shot.” Watch it:

Edwards responded to McCain today at The Wonk Room, saying her criticism was “not a cheap shot,” but rather “a potentially life and death question for tens of million of Americans. And it is a question Sen. McCain must address.”
