A message for people of faith........

From an interview with former Senator Tom Daschle from South Dakota on health care reform in Sunday's NY Times Magazine......

Do you think President Obama has done a good job of selling health care reform to the general public?

I think we have to do better at making this issue a moral imperative. I don’t think we’ve succeeded at that yet. I think the more we can bring everybody to an understanding about how this in many respects is the civil rights battle of the early part of this century — it’s a fight for the disabled, it’s a fight for the sick, it’s a fight for equal rights when it comes to health.
