"...an all-star group of elected officials, commentators and religious leaders for a discussion about religious freedom in light of the federal government's recent health care mandates.

I'm sure this issue would make our founding fathers roll in their graves. NOT. The healthcare bill as a whole is great. everyone should be able to get affordable health insurance. Does the bill need tweeking? Yes. But to condemn a bill on a couple of issues? I'm sure, our founding fathers didn't include healthcare in the constitution. Unless of course they specifically referred to health care practices, during that time, performed in barber shops!
