Harry Reid's Comparision of Health-Care Opponents to Slavery Supporters

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s has stretched the limits of political exaggeration. His comment comparing opponents of government-run health care to supporters of slavery is not only slanderous, it is historically naïve. If Republicans adopted the same demeanor, they could charge Democrats with returning to their historical roots of defending slavery against Republican abolitionists. After all, the health care bill would take away freedoms and rights of hardworking Americans. If Reid and Pelosi get their way, government-run health care will enslave us with higher taxes and the chains of a rapidly growing national debt that will rob us of our valued freedoms.
