Barbara Bush, 28-year-old daughter of former president George W. Bush, appeared on “Fox News Sunday” as a guest of Chris Wallace. She is founder and president of a public health-focused non-profit, Global Health Corps.

The older of the Bush fraternal twins worked with AIDS patients in Africa, Tanzania, South Africa, and Botswana, through a program sponsored by Baylor International Pediatrics AIDS Initiative after graduating from Yale University.

Her newest venture is bringing health equity to the U.S. and Africa. In her discussion of the initiative, she asked, “Why do, basically, people with money have good health care and why do people who live on lower salaries not have good health care? Health should be a right for everyone.”

Wallace took the opportunity to ask: “What do you think about Obama health care reform?” She replied: “Obviously the health care reform bill was highly debated by a lot of people and I’m glad the bill was passed.”

Laura Bush has also previously stepped outside of the Republican stronghold to support some liberal views: she supports gay marriage and supports the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. She also came to Obama’s defense when he caught flak for delivering a speech to children on the first day of school last fall.

It looks like some of the Bush women are free thinkers! Check out the daughter and mother videos below:
