A Highly Moral Piece of Legislation

Joe Klein says the importance of Obamacare "should not be lost in the Administration's failure to implement it. This is not health care for deadbeats, as many Republicans assume. It is a highly moral piece of legislation: the people most affected will be the working poor and lower middle class, people who have jobs, often at small businesses, but don't have health care. (The unemployed and unemployable poor already have health care via Medicaid.) It is a matter of simple fairness that if  we, as a society, provide health insurance to those who don't work, we also provide it to those who do."
