From a reader:
Republicans should counter Harry Reid’s ridiculous statement on slavery thusly: Isn’t the Democrat’s insistence that health insurance not be sold across state lines like the fugitive slave act? If you live in that state you can’t go anywhere to escape without being dragged back by federal law to the expensive plans in your state! Republicans are attempting to preserve freedom of choice on health care and the Democrats are using all governmental power to shut down this underground railroad to health care freedom!
Silly, but not as silly as Reid.
