We are Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical Christians who have united at this hour to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them. These truths are:
1.the sanctity of human life
2.the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife
3.the rights of conscience and religious liberty.
Arch-liberal Howard Dean makes it clear that he lusts after a fully socialist health care plan, but does allow some truth to slip through in this interview. He admits the current plan under consideration in congress will cost trillions of dollars, doesn’t reform anything, and that Republicans are actually right about the bottom line of this bill.
Longstanding tradition involves waiving the reading of a congressional bill before the vote, but Senator Tom Coburn is calling for a reading of the 2,074-page health care bill. With stakes this high, if our representatives can’t find the time or energy to read the bill, it seems the least they could do is pull up a chair and listen.
