Quote of the day: "Universal"

I think the health reforms could have been sold as universal health care, but that wouldn't have been true. […]

The problem is the idea of "universal". That is simply not an established American value. We are generally quite content to live in a country with vast disparities in rights, health, wealth and security out of some outdated fealty to "states' rights." And that lies at the root of so many of our problems.
