Like Obama, George Washington was a Socialist

If this bill passes the Senate, We the People will be forced to get government-managed health insurance whether we want it or can afford it or not. And if we don’t get it, we will be criminals under the law. Our Constitutional rights are being trampled.
From Joe Conason at Slate:
It is an annoying habit of politicians and activists on the right to loudly denounce almost anything they don’t like as “unconstitutional” — including progressive taxes, civil rights statutes, environmental protections, and now healthcare reform. So Republican lawyers and attorneys general around the country are preparing challenges to the healthcare reform bill on constitutional grounds, perhaps hoping that a Supreme Court majority will strike down the legislation with the same flagrant disdain for legal precedent and democratic order displayed in Bush v. Gore.
Conason then offers a little history lesson on the socialism of George Washington.
