Huck: Health care reform "not on fire in D.C."

Mike Huckabee was in Pittsburgh yesterday to chat about the nation's health care system, warning that any reform has to start in the private sector.

"The reason that I don't have a whole lot of faith that Congress is going to make the decisions and do the things that need to be done [is] politicians do not typically engage in policy changes that aren't going to be realized within their reelection term. [Health care reform] is not on fire in D.C."

Dr. Huck's Rx?

"It's going to be fixed in the private sector when companies start showing a better profit, and a better return, because they have healthier employees."
