Bill Clinton talks health care in Chicago

November 11, 2009 (CHICAGO) Clinton gave a wide-ranging speech to people involved with Chicago House. The organization provides housing and care for more than 1,000 people with AIDS.

"People like us, who aren't in government, have more power than any time in human history to make a difference and the internet means that people that have just a dollar or $5 to give, if millions of people agree with them can move the world," said Clinton.

The former president says without non-profit groups the health care problems in this country would be worse.

Clinton met with Democratic senators Tuesday and urged them to pass health care reform this year.
