"McCain campaign denies Goodman is ‘an advisor.’"
Yesterday, McCain health care architect John Goodman told the Dallas Morning News yesterday that there are no “uninsured” people in America because Americans have access to emergency rooms, which is a radical view of health care in this country. Now, the McCain campaign is trying to distance itself from Goodman, telling The New Republic’s Jonathan Cohn that “he is not an advisor“:
Although the Morning News article reported Goodman as a McCain advisor, the McCain campaign says he is NOT an advisor. That’s obviously a big distinction so I’ve corrected the item, which described Goodman as part of the campaign, as well as the update below. I apologize for the error.
But in July, when Goodman wrote a WSJ op-ed praising McCain’s health care plan, he was labeled “an unpaid adviser to the McCain campaign” by the paper.
