Clinton Touts Health Care Reform

Des Moines, Iowa (AP) -- Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton vows she'll create a universal health care system if she's elected President.

During an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America" from Iowa, Clinton said she "learned a lot" during the failed health care effort of her husband's presidency.

Clinton says "there's no doubt" there will be universal health care when she's President.

Asked how she could improve on her failed effort to reform health care back in the 1990s, Clinton said pressure for change has built in the last decade, and that would make it easier to tackle the issue.

Clinton says "it's hard to ignore the fact" that nearly 47 million people don't have health insurance, and that even people who do have insurance find it difficult to get care.
