James Madison on the “Affordable [sic] Care Act”


James Madison
fourth president of the United States
often called “the father of the Constitution”


“It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow.”  (James Madison, Federalist #62)


But, of course, that was then.  This is now.


Hope and change!
