Gov. Bill Richardson, a Democratic presidential candidate, proposed a universal health care plan he said would expand coverage to 45 million Americans without insurance. The plan would cost more than $100 billion, which Richardson, governor of New Mexico, said would be offset in part through preventive care. It would lower Medicare eligibility to 55, allow government programs to negotiate prices with drugmakers and encourage more use of generics.
