I've also gone to the great trouble of transcribing her comments:

"I've watched what's happened in Massachusetts. And Massachusetts went at it a slightly different way and they had a lot of new bureaucracy that they created to keep track of people. And they don't have the buying power that the federal government has; but I think it's very commendable that they are trying because we'll all learn things from that. But the federal government is in a much stronger position to build on this Congressional plan and I think it'll be cost effective, produce better results, higher quality and get everybody covered."

This program aired on January 7, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
