    The question is a constitutional one.

      They've proved that already. They installed Dumbya in the White House with their 12 December 2000 decision, and then they declared corporations are persons with first amendment rights.

      Neither are our Congress Critters ethical since they adamantly refused to consider single payer when their constituents were writing, calling, faxing and asking, telling, then begging them to not pass this POS for-profit health insurance legislation and go for a single-payer system instead, and/or an option to buy into Medicare.  Our Congress Critters (most of them - two exceptions I can think of off the top of my head) were certainly willing to take insurance, medical, and pharmaceutical corporate bribes via campaign contributions.  Their votes were bought and paid for by for-profit corporations going back to the mercenary and MIC corporations who are still profiting off of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars based on lies for oil.

      This country went off the tracks with the SCOTUS election decision in 2000, and between the religious fanatics who insist on inserting religious values into our secular laws and illegal wars, torture, the refusal to deal with the "leaders" who are so clearly war criminals, and now this for-profit health insurance mess, I have zero belief this country can ever get back to something resembling normal or ethical (at least not within the next 34 years, since I plan to live to age 100).  We are being mired deeper and deeper into Corporatism (per Mussolini's definition).

      If I were young and had my health again, I'd emigrate.

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
