End Run On Health Care

Abby Zimet

working overtime to derail affordable health care after their fail in
the Senate. Citing the law's "constitutional infringements" and focus on
"dependency over
personal responsibility," a group of 21 GOP governors has asked for huge changes that would gut it; Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels has written a frenzied WSJ editorial about the "impending disaster" of a "de facto government takeover"; and Michelle Bachmann says repealing what she calls "the crown jewel of socialism" is "my motivation
in life." All these people need to get a life. And, more importantly, a conscience.
