Something Old to Say about Healthcare Legislation

Several readers have asked me to comment on the health care legislation before the US Congress.

I have strong opinions (mixed with a high level of disgust), but nothing new to say that you cannot find on other blogs and opinion sites.

Let me remind us of something said early in our nation's history: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. ... Statesmen may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution, is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People, in a greater Measure than they have it now, They may change their Rulers, and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty." -- John Adams
