Original caption: WAS02:CLINTON-HEALTH:WASHINGTON,13JUL99 - U.S. President Bill Clinton gestures during a speech on health care reform at the White House July 13, as Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Mass) looks on. Clinton accused Republicans of giving in to the health insurance companies and backing a "watered-down" plan to protect people in health maintenance organizations. The GOP bill is a scaled down version of the Democratic "patients' bill of rights," covering fewer people and leaving out the right to sue if a patient is harmed by denial of care. The final vote is set for July 15. zdc/Photo by William Philpott REUTERS
