"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.
