11 Jan 2010 Quote of Note: Secret Deals Are No Way to Plan a Ski Trip, Let Alone a Health Care System
“Under wraps. Behind closed doors. Backroom deals. These phrases crop up again and again in reports of the Democrats’ health care legislation.
Would you go along with any plan that had these sinister signs swirling ’round it? Would you even go on a weekend ski trip if the details were kept under wraps, negotiated with backroom deals behind closed doors?
Of course not. And yet we are going to allow the government to take control of one-sixth of the economy and our health care?”
