Claiborne talks health care on CNN

Stephanie Weaver The ongoing debate about health care reform made headlines once again on Aug. 17 when President Barack Obama announced he was considering dropping his “public option” insurance plan for a compromising nonprofit health cooperative proposal. The government-run public option has been a heated topic between conservatives and liberals over the past months. In CNN’s coverage of the decision, the news channel explored what a co-op model could mean for health care. Shane Claiborne, an Eastern grad and Christian activist, was featured on the program, sharing from his personal experience with Ohio-based Christian Healthcare Ministries. While his portion of the coverage only spanned a few minutes, Claiborne spoke on both the convenience of sharing bills with a large group of trusted peers and the assurance of seeing exactly how his money is being used.
