As Bill Clinton prepared for an August 1994 news conference in which he hoped to build public support for his struggling — and ultimately unsuccessful — health care overhaul, he told his advisers: "A lot of them want to know they can keep their own plan if they like it."

The United States had already said it would not grant a visa to Iran's proposed U.N. ambassador, citing the envoy's links to the 1979-1981 hostage crisis.   [READ MORE]
 
Newly released documents from the Clinton White House reveal a candid assessment of the looming fight over the administrations doomed health care plan, as advisers tried unsuccessfully to steer the sprawling legislation through Congress. A series of 1993 memos and briefing notes shows how the Clinton White House anticipated but was ultimately overwhelmed by Republican lines of attack against the health care reform effort, which collapsed under criticism through 1993 and 1994.   [READ MORE]
